Mission Statement

Our mission is to to do something about the disparity between the general funds available to the Park and the enormous backlog of resource protection and education projects.

Description

With diverse ecosystems, a vbrant history, and and iconic bridge, Deception Pass State Park is an ideal place to explore, recreate, relax and learn. Beaches, sand dunes and tide pools flank old growth forests, freshwater lakes, and rocky balds. Deception Pass still bears the impression of the native peoples that once called this area home, and many of the park’s structures were built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

Yet despite everything that the park has to offer and a visitation rate that puts it on par with many National Parks, Deception Pass is subject to increasingly uncertain state funding, which seems to come and go like the tides.

That’s where we come in. The Deception Pass Park Foundation was formed in 2005 by a group of park neighbors. Our mission is to provide support for education and resource protection at Deception Pass. With the help of our members and community supporters, we've already accomplished a lot. But there's always more to do. So join us and help us preserve Deception Pass and ensure that park visitors will continue to enjoy its natural and historic wonders.
