Friends of Island Lake: A new group was formed in the spring of 2013 to support and assist the Park and park staff. We are a volunteer auxiliary, like a PTA is for an elementary school. We will do projects and activities the park does not have resources or staff to do or complete. Our mission is to support, enhance, protect, and promote the natural, historic, and recreational features of the park and Huron River. To join or find out more information about Friends, go to our web site or come to a meeting which are the fourth Tuesday evening of each month except December.
