The History of the Maudslay State Park Association

OUR MISSION - To assist in the operation of Maudslay State Park and to serve as liaison between the nearby communities and the Department of Conservation and Recreation. To promote the wise use of the natural and historical resources of the Park, foster its use and enjoyment by the public consistent with the protection and preservation of its environment, and engage in such educational, scientific and civic activities as will assist the State in the formation and operation of the Park.
