The Friends have raised funds and public awareness to restore and maintain the historical buildings within the Park such as the Eldora State House, Shultz-Leeper House and Seminole Rest.
In 2010, celebrating the 35th anniversary of Canaveral National Seashore, Friends supported the Park‘s initiative to provide hands-on, interactive educational opportunities to students and visitors by sponsoring the 1st Canaveral Seashore Plein Air Paint Out. The 2011 - 2014 Paint Outs were a huge success, bringing additional artists, visitors and more awareness to our beautiful area. Please join us October 3rd – 8th, 2016, when Friends of Canaveral host the 6th Canaveral Seashore Plein Air Paint Out and Centennial Celebration for 100 years of National Park Service.
The Paint Out and Run with the Rangers events continues the Friends legacy of fund raising to enhance the environmental education programs and to further the National Seashore‘s goal of teaching the value of conservation and stewardship to our youth.
See you at the park!
