"…working together to keep ALL state parks open and operating for future generations…"
Due to the pandemic, meeting schedules may vary and will be announced regularly on the FOSLS Facebook Page. Meetings are normally held on the second Sunday of each month at 7 pm.
Schafer Work Party:
10:00am - 2:00pm Saturday, March 27th
We will clean campgrounds and select trails. Bring tools you wish to use.
For more information visit the FOSLS newsletter on facebook here
The campgrounds are limited in size. Please see the ranger's office for more details.
Want to volunteer? Leave a message at (360) 249-2573 with your name and contact phone number.
Trails and day-use areas will remain open. However, Washington state discourages people from visiting the beaches due to high volume of people.
As always, please practice safe social distancing protocols.
The public grand opening of the Legacy Pavilion has been delayed. We will let you know as soon as a date has been determined.
For more information, please visit the Washington State Park's website here for more information regarding the Coronavirus.
We are a 501(C)3 community-based organization focused on helping preserve Schafer and Lake Sylvia State Parks. We have worked to present the state park story to our legislature and have supported the state park agency as they have worked to preserve our state park system. We wouldn't be who we are without the work and help that our volunteers, board members, and donors have put into FOSLS.
We need volunteers to do everything from down and dirty work in the parks to advocating for state parks in Olympia. All skill and physical levels are welcome. Come to a FOSLS meeting! Call (360) 789-9953 for date/time
