 The Friends are looking for board members and volunteers to assist with the events and projects they support. If you love Whiskeytown and have a couple of hours to spare each month, please consider how you could help support this beautiful park and lake.

The Friends of Whiskeytown holds an annual fundraiser, the Brandy Creek Luau. Additionally, the organization also supports many important Whiskeytown projects and events such as funding the hiring of students to work on conservation and trails projects; purchasing equipment for the free ranger-led kayak tours; purchasing supplies for the annual Harvest Festival and Old Time Holiday, and the Pick Up Lake Litter event, and operating the park Artist-in-Residence program and completing footbridge and trails projects. 


The Friends of Whiskeytown board meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month upstairs at the YMCA, 1155 Court St. in Redding. Meetings start at 6pm and last from 1 to 1 1/2 hrs.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Mark your Calendars for December 5, 2015 when the National Park Service will again offer its popular Old Time Holiday Event at the Camden House. This popular event is free, and everyone has the opportunity to create holiday wreaths and decorations. 


The Friends of Whiskeytown thanks all those who attended, donated, volunteered and supported the Friends of Whiskeytown's 5th Annual Luau, held on Brandy Creek Beach on September 6, 2014.  Over 200 guests enjoyed a Polynesian style buffet, Hawaiian dancing, a fire dancer and the opportunity to bid on amazing live and silent auction items. Each attendee also received a complimentary stemless commemorative wine glass or a beer glass.
