About Friends of DIP

Barry  As we enter our 3rd year as a tax exempt 501(c3) charity,  we are proud of how far we have come in a relatively short time. Today, we have over 130 family and individual members. Our outreach programs and speaking engagements have brought many more supporters beyond our membership.

Working with the Broward Department of Parks and Recreation, we have helped promote Deerfield Island through expanded educational programs, activities and advocacy. Completed projects include kayak storage racks, and planting and maintaining a butterfly garden. We have raised funds to puchase folding chairs and benches for the new outdoor classroom.

We have a new corporate supporter, with JM Family Enterprises, Inc. joining us to complete an ADA compliant walkway and help make the existing structure a true Research and Nature Center.

We are proud that the Friends of Deerfield Island Park has been a  partner with the Broward Department of Parks and Recreation in establishing the island as a showpiece of what community inpiut can accomplish with county government for it's citizens.
