Friends of DuPont Forest is turning 20 in 2020 and we are celebrating all year! Twenty years ago a rowdy group of citizens rallied to save the Forest from development. Since the gates opened on December 18, 2000 Friends of DuPont Forest volunteers (like you!) built a world class trail system, put in thousands of volunteer hours to maintain the trails, and led hundreds of educational events.
20 years ago we never imagined DuPont would attract 1 million visitors a year. The trails are just not set up to handle that many people. High visitation has become a critical issue.
What can you do? You can volunteer to support our campaign to raise money for a Trails Master Plan. Together we can create a vision for what DuPont State Recreational Forest will look like in the next 20 years.
