Incorporated in 1972, Friends of Borderland, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit volunteer organization that assists the Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation in preserving and interpreting the natural, historical, and cultural resources of Borderland State Park in North Easton.

In addition to assisting the park by purchasing flowers, bird seed, mutt mitts, sponsoring events, etc.  Each year we pick an item or items that are in need of restoration, in order to preserve the history for future generations.  In 2018 we are raising funds to assist the park in updating a portion of the visitor center (interior) and matching funds with DCR for a new water fountain!


"We want to go back, always back, and more of us long for a knowledge of the past, even for the sensations of an existence in it, than those of us who speculate idly concerning the distant and intangible future."

- Oakes Ames
