Each year, Deception Pass Park Foundation works with Deception Pass State Park to identify places and projects where DPPF’s effective mix of private philanthropy, volunteerism, and strong partnerships will most benefit the park’s critical needs. Through volunteer mobilization, membership funds, grants, donations, and advocacy we accomplish things like:
- Funding an AmeriCorp member each year who works hard during the summer bringing interpretive programs to park visitors.
- The Beach Naturalist Program designed to promote interpretation and conservation at tide pools and beaches in our area. Volunteers are trained in several topics so that they can interact with school groups and the public at the Rosario Tide Pools.
- Historic renovations have been made possible because of the Deception Pass Park Foundation, as well as construction of new buildings like North Beach Amphitheater.
