The purpose of our Friends Group is to offer support in the areas of conservation, recreational resources, and educational efforts at Breaks Interstate Park, and to assist the park in its endeavors in preservation of our unique landscape.
Established by the U.S. Congress in 1954, Breaks Park is one of only two interstate parks in the United States. The 4600-acre park is located on the Kentucky-Virginia border and encompasses areas in both states.
Being an Interstate Park is a wonderful designation, but it also creates some unique challenges. While state parks receive 100 percent of their funding from state government, Breaks Interstate Park is administered differently. It only receives a total of 15 percent of its funding from Kentucky and Virginia. As you can imagine, that presents problems in respect to making park upgrades, providing a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, and better promoting environmental stewardship. To better serve our visitors, and offer more services and opportunities, we need your help.
Please join us in our efforts by becoming a Friends of Breaks Park member.
The support we receive through membership, volunteers, and donations assists in many worthwhile causes. Your donation is a direct investment in the continued success of Breaks Park. The future depends on you. Help us to be the best we can be!
