Welcome. The purpose of the foundation is to not only bring together state parks supporters but putting together a system to better improve the state park experience.
For all the outdoor lovers, Washington State Parks provide many outdoor activities. You can bring your cameras or camera tripod to take breath taking scenic photos in addition to enjoying the outdoor activities.
Currently there are more than 100 state parks and there are plenty of things to do including biking, hiking, skiing and camping. In Winter, visitors can enjoy snow capped peaks while in other seasons, individuals can enjoy other diverse geographic scenic beauties.
In 1913, the state parks system was established via land donations from various individuals. In terms of history, the parks system ranks fourth in age which is even older than the National Park Service. With private donations overtime, the park systems have evolved in one of the largest state park systems in the US.
In year 2000, the foundation was built as a support for the system. Not only does it serve as a hub for park supporters but also a center to develop projects with the overall goal to improve the park experience for visitors and residence. The foundation is nonprofit.
Currently there are challenges in terms of the budget being able to finance state park facilities and programs. The Small and Simple Grants assist in smaller projects while private donations both large and small also help in enhancing or improving certain recreational activity or individual parks.
