What We Do


The Friends of Shawnee supports the PPFF mission locally by developing and/or supporting programs and events that celebrate Shawnee State Park.  We hope to encourage more people to use this wonderful local resource. 


These events include: Fireworks on the Lake, Art in the Park and Kids' Fishing Derbies and more.  (Look for new events like movie night, concerts and fun walk/run events to come!) 


We also work to promote the Outdoor Activities and Programs planned by Park Naturalists and in support of the Park Manager and Rangers and to educate the public about the many opportunities available at Shawnee State Park.
