❤ Become an active Friend of Whidbey State Parks
Our members love our local State Parks!
Here are ways that members are helping to make a difference for the parks...
1st Day Hike
Windstorms cause branches to fall onto trails, invasive plants need to be removed and lawns need mowing. You can help keep the parks spruced up and ready for fun activities. Volunteers work under the guidance of a volunteer Team Leader who has been trained by Park staff. You can choose the parks you want to work in and invite your friends to be part of the trail team. Or perhaps you would like to be a Team Leader?
Our state parks have special events scheduled throughout the year. Events at Fort Casey in 2017 included an Easter Scavenger Hunt, Music in the Park, Movie in the Park, National Lighthouse Day, Haunted Fort and Light Up Your Holiday. A Program Specialist coordinates special events and programs throughout the year. Funds raised through special events are used to help maintain the park.
Clean Up the Ft. Ebey Campground
You can adopt a favorite trail or beach, care for historic buildings, improve habitat for wildlife...there's a lot to do in the parks! You'll be trained by a Team Leader and can create your own schedule. Invite your family and friends to join you for fun and exercise while you help your adopted park! Stay fit and enjoy nature as you care for natural areas. Have fun and make a difference!
Fort Casey Volunteer Battalion
Join the Fort Casey Volunteer Battalion and learn about the history of Fort Casey so you can be a tour guide and teach visitors about everyday life at the Fort during WW l and WW ll.
Battalion volunteers conduct tours of the fort and special rooms in the batteries every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the summer and on holidays throughout the year.
