About Us

The Friends of Sauratown Mountains (FSM) was established in October, 2010 by an assembly of representatives of several regional organizations with interests relating to the Sauratown Mountains as well as individuals recognizing the need for a Friends group to support Hanging Rock and Pilot Mountain State Parks.  FSM was organized as a Chapter of the Friends of State Parks of North Carolina (FSP) and operated under their umbrella for two years.
In October, 2012 the Friends of Sauratown Mountains incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the laws of the State of North Carolina.  FSM continues as a Chapter of FSP but operates independently.
