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

News Board


The next FOSLS  board meeting will be held Sunday April 6th, 2019 at the Montesano library meeting room at 6pm.  We are always interested in welcoming new members and inviting people who are interested in talking with us about serving on our non-profit board. E-mail us at Info@FOSLS.org for location update and with suggested agenda items for this and other meetings. .

Upcoming Events

There is a FOSLS Work Party planned for Saturday, April 20th at Schafer State Park. The work party begins at 9:00am at the old ranger house. Ranger Nick Schwalb asks for you to bring gloves and hand tools if you have them. There will be a potluck held afterwards at noon. Feel free to bring a dish to share.
