DESCRIPTION
THE FRIENDS OF LETCHWORTH STATE PARK is a non-profit group incorporated in June 2000, by the State of New York with a mission to support the preservation, conservation and careful development of Letchworth State Park:

Letchworth State Park is 14,300 acres of scenic magnificence easily accessible to metropolitan Rochester and Buffalo. Following the nearly 600 foot deep, 20 mile gorge the Genesee River has cut through western New York State, the park offers waterfalls and cliffs, wildlife and woodlands, as well as camping, picnicking and playground areas.

Founded in 1907 by philanthropist William Pryor Letchworth, today the park protects plants and animals rare and endangered in the state, preserves priceless Iroquois artifacts and provides an educational resource enjoyed by thousands of area school children each year. The park’s staff offers interpretive and recreational programs in all seasons.
