Get Involved

The Foundation is a dedicated group of friends who support Starved Rock State Park through educational programs, exhibit updates, guided hikes, and more. We work closely with the park staff to ensure a positive park experience. Without our volunteers, the Visitors’ Center, Guided Hikes, and Programs would not be possible.

Become a part of our team and make a difference!!

Become a Member

Many of the benefits of being a member in an organization cannot be listed or described since they are internal and spiritual. Each person makes their own joy out of participating in their own way.


We value your time and skills. Whether you’re a retired professional, history enthusiast, nature lover, gardening expert, creative thinker, or simply enjoy connecting with others, we invite you to be a part of our community. Together, let’s make a meaningful impact!
