The Whatcom Parks and Recreation Foundation was established in 1990. The original Trustees brought to the Foundation varied backgrounds and experience, both lay and professional, in parks and recreation. That expertise has served the Foundation well, and there is a goal that the continuing work of the Foundation be placed in the hands of individuals with knowledge of and commitment to parks and recreation.

With a quiet beginning from a dedicated core of individuals the Foundation invites participants to make a difference in assuring that the park and recreation resources and opportunities that contribute to the quality of life in Whatcom County will be maintained and enhanced now and for future generations.
