Volunteers are always needed.

We need board members and volunteers for each of these events listed so we may be able to have and offer more events like this in the future. 

Volunteers are needed for environmental work, membership drives, social media awareness and special events that bring information about our favorite island to the public. 

Will you please consider donating a little of your time by joining us and help out our organization?


(If we do not have a volunteer application on file for you - you MUST fill one out and submit it before the day of the event.)

Anclote Key Lighthouse will be open to the public to climb. Come and see a piece of history and climb the lighthouse to see a spectacular view of Anclote Key State Park and the surrounding area. There's no cost to climbing the lighthouse but, donations are always welcome so that we can help the island and continue to put on events like this.

We will have Memorial Brick order forms, tee shirts, ornaments, and other items for sale.

Always keeping the weather in mind, please bring water, sunscreen, bug spray, and whatever else you will need for the day. 

To get to the island you'll need to come by boat (private or rental), canoe or kayak or other types of watercraft. 

We do not have any tour boats bringing passengers to the island.

We also meet from time-to-time out on Anclote Key to help the Ranger with volunteer projects. 

The Friends of Anclote Key State Park & Lighthouse is volunteer organization that supports the park. It is a Citizens Support Organization (CSO) designated by the State of Florida and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). 

The Park

Anclote Key State Park is actually a chain of islands located in the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of the Anclote River. It consists of Anclote Key, Three Rooker Island, and the North Sandbar. Anclote Key is 440-acre nature preserve. Three Rooker is a bird sanctuary. 

Because these two areas are nature preserves, no dogs are allowed. The North Sandbar is small sandy spit where Fido is welcome. 

For all of these areas you are encouraged to leave them as you found them. Take your trash with you and help us preserve these water wonderlands for future generations.
