GiveOrcas Fund Raising Campaign

December 2 – 20, 2019

Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is undertaking an exhibit development project at the summit: The new Interpretive Center. The center will focus on building meaningful connections that help visitors understand the broader story of Mount Constitution. It will also house the new Gift Shop. The build is scheduled to start in early 2020.

Let’s Build a Center that’s Orcas Grown/Milled and Keep it Local!

This past February’s windstorm downed hundreds of trees in Moran State Park. Let’s use those trees to support a sustainable build of the new Mt. Constitution Interpretive Center. The wood is free, but there is a cost to mill and prepare the wood for the build. A local mill is helping but we need your help to get us over the finish line. From fire hazard to studs and beams…let’s keep it local!

The Friends of Moran have been selected by the Orcas Island Community Foundation as one of the non-profits for the 2019 Give Orcas Holiday Catalog. The holiday catalog is an opportunity for non-profits to raise funds to support important initiatives on Orcas Island.

This is a significant opportunity and we need your help!
