FOLK (Friends of Long Key) was formed in 2014 and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of a group of park lovers who support Long Key's mission and care about preserving the natural history of Long Key while educating the community about it. We support the park through volunteer hours and fundraising.
We support several annual park events, including Moth Week in late July by hosting a fun and successful plant sale and host a Teddy Bear picnic for the kids in September.
Kevin Wilke was instrumental in creating the Friends of Long Key and getting it off the ground as a non-profit organization supporting the park. He served as FOLK's founding President until 2016 and made it a model Friends Group for Broward County. In November 2016, we lost Kevin too soon to a battle with cancer. We fondly remember Kevin and have installed a sundial in his memory in the Island Garden at the park and continue to work on the mission that brought us together.
