Welcome to FOSLS: Friends of Schafer & Lake Sylvia

"…working together to keep ALL state parks open and operating for future generations…"

About Us


How we're helping

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.


Want to get involved?

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
