Eradicating invasive dune grass

Eradicating invasive dune grass

Our organization exists largely on the support of generous volunteers and donors. In recent years, we have funded the installation of eco-friendly water bottle filling stations in the Commons and Building 200, and the installation of bicycle racks outside of Taps at the Guardhouse. Our volunteers operate the Gift Shop/Visitors Center serving the many annual visitors to the park, we provide quarterly guided nature walks, and our Trail Team provides over 1,000 hours each year maintaining Fort Worden’s trails and natural areas, including development and printing of the Fort Worden Trail Map and installing new trail signage.
