Friends of A1A Needs Your Support!
Each year, thousands of residents and visitors flock to St. Johns and Flagler counties’ sandy beaches, many parks and rivers. From beach walkways to interpretive signs and gazebos, numerous park improvements have been made for the public’s greater appreciation of their environment.
Some may not realize that many of those improvements were made possible by the Friends of A1A, a non-profit organization that advocates for the A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway. Through the efforts of
Friends, parklands have been added and improved throughout the length of the corridor, ordinances have enabled business and residential development while maintaining the sense of old Florida that makes the area unusual and visitors have been brought and informed through the innovative cell phone tour and media
programs as well as events such as the 72 mile garage sale and bike touring events. Right now, the Friends of A1A needs your help more than ever in order to continue bringing you those improvements.
The federal and state governments have cut ALL funding for national Byway projects, which includes ours. The organization is facing a special challenge in the current economic environment. We need your help in two ways:
● First -
To meet this special challenge, Friends of A1A has increased the size of its Board of Directors and is broadening participation in the planning and oversight of our projects. We need volunteers who are willing to work to help us maintain and improve the special nature of the corridor by serving as a Board member and/or as a committee member on special projects.
● Second - We also need your financial support in any amount. To help us meet these goals, go to
and click on “Donate” button on the first page or send a donation to Friends of
A1A, 2175 Mizell Road, St. Augustine, FL 32080. Please help now
so we can continue our work in preserving, protecting, and promoting the corridor for residents, businesses, and visitors.
