The Friends of Anclote Key State Park & Lighthouse is volunteer organization that supports the park. It is a Citizens Support Organization (CSO) designated by the State of Florida and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).

We have meetings on the first Tuesday of each month, which is open to everyone. We meet at the Tarpon Springs Public Library at 7:00 pm. 

We also meet from time-to-time out on Anclote Key to help the Ranger with volunteer projects. Volunteers are needed for environmental work, membership drives, and special events that bring information about our favorite island to the public. 

The Park

Anclote Key State Park is actually a chain of islands located in the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of the Anclote River. It consists of Anclote Key, Three Rookers Island, and the North Sandbar. Anclote Key is 440-acre nature preserve. Three Rooker is a bird sanctuary. 

Because these two areas are nature preserves, no dogs are allowed. The North Sandbar is small sandy spit where Fido is welcome. 

For all of these areas you are encouraged to leave them as you found them. Take your trash with you and help us preserve these water wonderlands for future generations.
