The Friends of Roxborough is a nonprofit, 501(c) 3, and operates by the generous time of volunteers. The mission of the Friends group is to support nature education at the park.
Two projects that are currently in the forefront are the Barbara Fritts Scholarship Fund, which reimburse qualifying schools transportation costs for kids to come to the park for educational nature experiences, and an archaeology display that will tell the story of the native peoples who visited the Roxborough area and left behind artifacts for us to discover.
