FRIENDS HELPING FRIENDS
Since 1935, Fort Clinch State Park has welcomed millions of visitors to Fernandina Beach. Whether riding a bicycle or walking under the canopy of trees, touring historic Fort Clinch, camping close to the ocean, or searching for seashells and shark’s teeth, all of these things have delighted and captured the imagination of those who have experienced the Real Florida at Fort Clinch State Park.
The Friends of Fort Clinch, along with your help, are supporting a much needed renovation to the 1960s era Ranger Station at the park entrance.
This Project has 3 Phases:
Phase 1 – Landscaping which is complete, and was funded by the Friends of Fort Clinch.
Phase 2 – Exterior/Interior improvements include remove worn carpet and replace with a slate floor; reframe the north windows to improve the appearance and make room for an ADA water-bottle filling station; update the workstations to improve efficiency and spacing; replace the east door and relocate the camper check-in station.
Join us in making the Ranger Station a bright, welcoming entrance for all who pass through our Fort Clinch State Park.
The Friends of Fort Clinch are matching, dollar-for-dollar, up to $30,000 to give this well-deserved gift to the Park.
Phase 3 – Interior improvements include realign the interior closet to improve storage; install an ADA water-bottle filling station, replace lights with energy-efficient LED can lights; remove old wall paneling and replace with paint-finished drywall and trim; update bathroom with new tile, door, automatic hand-dryer, faucet and soap dispenser; replace countertop; and design and install new interpretive panels in the lobby area.
