April 1, 2012 The Friends of Sherwood Island State Park recently launched their new website.  Our primary goal was to provide our visitors and members with a more user-friendly experience as well as faster access to information about the park as well as upcoming events.  We are still working out a few bugs in the system and working hard to get new content, events, articles and photographs for 2012.
