About the Friends

The Friends of Murphys Point Park is a registered non-profit charity that was formed in 1995. Entirely volunteer run with an elected board of directors, executive and dozens of members, the Friends work to enhance the natural heritage education program at Murphys Point Provincial Park.

The Friends mandate is to further the public’s awareness, education and understanding of the geological, historical/archaeological, cultural and biological resources of Murphys Point Provincial Park by:

  • Undertaking specific educational and interpretive projects related to the park
  • Conducting research about the park’s natural, cultural and historical resources with a view to disseminating findings to the public
  • Supporting existing educational, interpretive and recreational programs for the public’s benefit
  • Stimulating community interest and understanding of the park to help ensure its protection

We have many exciting and educational projects currently underway. One of our long-standing projects has been to support Gray Ratsnake monitoring and protection efforts through fundraising and by educating the public about this important threatened species.
