Mission Statement

The Friends of Olompali Cooperating Association was founded to help California State Parks interpret, preserve, protect, enhance, and develop the natural, cultural and aesthetic values of Olompali State Historic Park. What makes Olompali so unique is its 8,000-year continuous human history and its changing land use over time. Pick any point in history, and there are stories to tell at Olompali!

Description

When the Friends of Olompali started out in 1982, we were a small group of nature education guides who were inspired by noted naturalist Elizabeth Terwilliger to open this remarkable site to the public. Over the last 40 years, TOP has matured into a community-based nonprofit cooperating association whose objective is to see through the implementation of Olompali’s General Plan and support educational programming at the park.
