This year we are celebrating our 25th Anniversary as an all-volunteer non-profit organization supporting Fort Worden State Park. Our group operates a year-round Gift Shop & Visitor Information Center and supports a Trail Team whose members help Park visitors, remove invasive weeds and perform trail maintenance. Through our fund-raising activities we help support Park projects and improvements that are not funded through the State Parks budget, such as bike racks, water bottle filling stations and a public viewing telescope. And we support the legacy of this Park through our Oral History Program.
