Who We Are

The Friends of Anclote Key State Park & Lighthouse is a volunteer organization that supports the islands and lighthouse.  It is a Citizens Support Organization (CSO) designated by the State of Florida and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.  It is composed of people who care about the ecological health of the islands and the integrity of the lighthouse. 

Mission Statement:  To support the Florida State Park Service in its efforts to preserve the ecological health of the Anclote islands and associated underwater habitats, and also sustain the structural integrity, appearance, and visitation of Anclote Lighthouse.  

Board meetings to conduct business are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the conference room of the Tarpon Springs Library.  These meetings are open to everyone.  We encourage attendance and welcome ideas and feedback.
