Now is the time to join the Friends of San Felasco Citizen Support Organization (CSO), a non-profit corporation that makes it possible for you to support the park. The San Felasco CSO is a diverse group of outdoor enthusiasts, including horse riders, mountain bikers, hikers, hand-launched glider pilots, bird watchers, and ecologists. The CSO's goals include promoting the recreational uses of the park, as well as the understanding of the park's unique mix of ecosystems.
For a summary of CSO accomplishments during the fiscal year July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013, see

Both the Florida Park Service and the Friends of San Felasco have authorized money to be used to reduce the feral hog population in the park. A volunteer has established contracts with the Park Service and St. Francis House to use the captured hogs to feed the hungry in Gainesville. Through May 28th, 21 hogs have been caught, and 850 pounds of meat have been delivered to St. Francis House! For information about St. Francis House, see St. Francis House.
