Friends of Myles Standish State Forest (FMSSF) is a volunteer group organized to promote and conserve the natural, cultural and historic resources of Myles Standish State Forest. We are dedicated to restoring and maintaining the forest and its trails for sustainable recreation, to educating ourselves and others about the forest, and to promoting a healthy habitat for native plants and wildlife. We encourage every citizen to enjoy the forest in a manor consistent with protecting and preserving this rare and endangered ecosystem. Please join friends of Myles Standish State Forest and help the forest we all love.
Our volunteers love nature and value the MSSF as a unique and globally rare pine barrens habitat. We hold trail work parties to maintain and sign trails. Our native plant team works to monitor and remove invasive aquatic and terrestrial plants. We organize community events and guided hikes, forestry tours and forums designed to raise appreciation and understanding for the forest. Our focus is on children, training them to feel comfortable in nature and to value it. We have many outlets for volunteers. We are an open and friendly group of all ages. MSSF is a public forest and we can all participate in keeping it beautiful and viable. Please join us.
