The Friends of Whiskeytown, Inc. was created as an independent non-profit, 501 (c) 3, organization for the purpose of securing private funding for park projects due to the shortfall of public funding in the National Parks. FOW was incorporated in November 2002.
The Friends of Whiskeytown, Inc. is a non-profit organization cooperating with the National Park Service in the stewardship of the natural and cultural resources of Whiskeytown National Recreational Area. Cooperation may be provided through supporting appropriate visitor opportunities to observe, experience and understand the character of the area; working with park staff and completing special projects; and taking the lead in fundraising for special projects.
Co-Presidents: Kerry Jarvis & Ken Showalter
Vice President: Mark Swanson
Treasurer: Susan Lynette Shaw
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 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!
