Friends of Bidwell Park


Campaign Message

Incorporated in 2003 as a private non-profit organization, Friends of Bidwell Park has been instrumental in the creation of the Bidwell Park Master Management Plan. This has involved ongoing interaction with City of Chico park staff in terms of implementation, including the currently proposed vegetative fuels management plan and related on-the-ground projects. Friends of Bidwell Park has also financially supported clean-up activities and invasive plant removal for years and is looking forward to its ongoing participation in educational outreach, including the publication of appropriate materials for use by schools and the general public.

Mission Statement

Friends of Bidwell Park's mission is to conserve, protect, manage and enhance the natural, scenic, biological and educational opportunities and qualities of the sensitive and valuable public trust lands that form Bidwell Park.
