Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah is a grassroots organization with the mission of nurturing and restoring our connection to nature. For over 30 years our conservation community has been helping to ensure that the unique habitats of the greater Mt. Pisgah area remain a treasure now and into the future.

Volunteers with Friends have the opportunity to align their volunteering work with their personal connection to nature and our community. Friends provides opportunities for habitat restoration, trail maintenance and native plant nursery work in addition to other types of service to fit all skill levels and abilities.

We strive to make our community of stewardship volunteers one that embraces diversity and celebrates the gifts of each individual, while removing barriers and creating opportunities for growth and learning. We also recognize that there are populations in our community that have historically been and currently are excluded, underserved & underrepresented in our work. We commit to improve access to our organization and build partnerships with those individuals and communities towards long-term, mutually beneficial, authentic relationships to ensure their experiences and world views inform our work.

Join us and become a part of our conservation community, contributing to the health and wellbeing of Buford Park!
