News: Members to vote on grants

Our Park Improvement Project program is designed to meet real needs in our state parks that are often too small to get attention through other means. 

These grants are available to all Washington State Parks on an annual basis and right now we are busy curating projects to share with our members who will vote to help select 2017 grantees. 

We need you to help us! Be sure to become a member or renew membership by May 10th so you can help select and fund the next round.

You can tap on photos below to see recent grantees and get inspired to do your part to help your state parks!
