Volunteers inspired by the beauty and
history of Oregon's largest state park
have been active here since the
establishment of the park in 1933. In
1986, the citizens and park staff
envisioned a mission and established
the Friends of Silver Falls State Park,
As a result, this private and public
partnership has created a more
meaningful park experience for the
nearly one million annual visitors to
the park, far beyond what state park
funding alone can provide.
To further the educational and interpretive
opportunities available to park visitors; to
promote, preserve and enhance the
historical, natural and recreational
resources within the park; and to assist with
park improvements and educational
programs compatible with the nature of
Silver Falls State Park.
