Friends of Oscar Scherer Park
The FOSP is a non-profit organization; officially designated a CSO – Citizen Support Organization – by the DEP. We operate under usual non-profit guidelines but have state oversight, due to our affiliation to a state park.
Our purpose is to raise funds from events and appropriate grants that can be used by Oscar Scherer State Park for projects and equipment purchases. Basically the “Friends” make up the shortfall in state funding and also plan more ambitious projects that we consider beneficial to the park.
