Resource Protection Through Education
Our Mission is to encourage general awareness and further public education in an effort to promote the responsible use and protection of the Park and its cultural, recreational, historical and natural resources.
State Park’s budget has not kept pace with the very real needs of Deception Pass State Park. In 2010, the Park’s Interpretive Specialist was lost due to budget cuts. This left Deception Pass without any staff dedicated to educational work.
Hundreds of school children visit Deception
Pass on field trips each year, and the Park’s
annual visitation rate is over two million!
Your support plays a critical role in visitor’s experiences. All of the money raised goes to the direct benefit of the educational and resource protection programs of Deception Pass State Park.
