About Us

Who are the Friends of Grover Hot Springs?

We help support Grover Hot Springs State Park by raising money through membership and donations.

The Friends of Grover Hot Springs operate under the umbrella of the Bodie Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that generates funding for three state parks, Bodie State Historic Park, Mono Lake State Nature Reserve and Grover Hot Springs State Park.

Our Mission

To promote relaxation and recreation in a unique, predominantly natural environment,  to increase the visitors understanding of the natural processes and human history that made the park what it is today, and to motivate visitors to help preserve and protect the park for future generations.

Our History

The Bodie Foundation was formed by a small group of individuals dedicated to helping with the preservation of Bodie.  During 2009 the foundation became a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  In 2010 its mission expanded to help support two additional state park units, Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve and Grover Hot Springs State Park.  The Friends of Grover Hot Springs formed during  2010 to raise money for the park.
