The Friends is entirely  a volunteer  organization which loves and cares for Poke-O-Moonshine. We do upkeep on the fire tower, light trail work, outdoor and environmental education/interpretation, fundraising, and public relations. We work with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Towns of Chesterfield and Lewis, the Adirondack History Museum, several Adirondack Mountain Club chapters, The ADK Pro Trail Crew and Tahawus Trails, local businesses and summer camps, SUNY Plattsburgh, SUNY Potsdam, and Hamilton College, and hundreds of people who also love the mountain. 

We’re guided by a steering committee of community members, which meets about  six times a year. We do trail maintenance in the warm months, educational hikes throughout the year, and occasional events in the community.

Please see About Us for more details. If you feel you can add to our work and would like to volunteer in any of our initiatives,  please contact us
