By becoming a member of the Friends of Mount Tabor Park, you will join hundreds of others in supporting our efforts to improve the health, beauty, safety, and diversity of the park. Membership dues/donations are used to support the following programs:
The Visitors Center
Each year we have more than 12,000 visitors who stop in at the Visitor Center looking for information. Volunteers lead educational workshops about Mt. Tabor's history, geology, and flora, and provide information and guides to park visitors.
The Friends organize and underwrite the costs of Weed Warrior activities, which are aimed at eliminating non-native and invasive species from the park. Hundreds of volunteers participate monthly in maintaining and fostering healthy park ecosystems.
Mt. Tabor Park Foot Patrol
More than 80 active volunteers take to the trails and streets of Mt. Tabor Park with trash bags and garbage tongs to keep the park clean. They also monitor park safety and report any problems or patterns they see.
In addition to these great programs, FMTP also:
Puts on community events like the Tar n' Trail 5K and Summer Concert Series
Works with local neighborhood and nature groups to make the park a welcoming place for everyone
Hosts students from nearby schools to learn more about native plants and help maintain the park
Advocates in public forums on behalf of park users
Produces park trail maps, Tree Guide, and other brochures
