The Friends of Sherwood Island (FOSI) are a committed coalition of concerned outdoorsmen, environmentalists, birders, and educators who support public programs at the very first state parklands in Connecticut. It is a 230-acre shoreline paradise for walking, fishing, birding, picnics, and disc golf. FOSI has initiated a Dune Restoration program and the creation of a Butterly Garden. The Nature Center, a building realized through FOSI and staffed annually through FOSI funds, is open each season for public programs, including feeding snakes and turtles, counting nesting horseshoe crabs, and the banding of purple martins before they migrate to the Amazon for the Winter.
