Whidbey State Park group organizes

A group to support South Whidbey State Park will celebrate its creation Aug. 19 in Freeland.

The event is 7 p.m. Monday at St. Augustine’s in-the-Woods Episcopal Church. The event will feature guest speakers, refreshments and prizes. People are invited to shape the Friends of South Whidbey State Park.

The membership drive will allow people to sign up for various tasks. Some of the jobs are leading nature walks, maintaining trails, assisting in evening camp programs, environmental education, developing publications, improving park facilities, developing a water trails site and other works.

Peter Herzog, partnerships and planning program manager at Washington State Parks, will address the opportunities ahead of Friends of South Whidbey State Park.

Organizers have met with Jon Crimmins, area manager for Central Whidbey State Park, for almost a year to draft bylaws, incorporate the group and sign a cooperating association agreement between State Parks, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and the Friends of South Whidbey State Park.
