Board of Directors

The Friends of Utah State Parks is governed by an executive committee and a board of directors.

Service on the FUSP board is strictly voluntary. Board members have varying backgrounds including former state parks employees and volunteers, political leaders, tourism officials and others. They live in areas around the state. All are state parks users who have experienced what our parks have to offer and see the value in preserving this experience for future generations.
