Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (WSPRC) will hold a public meeting Saturday on Orcas (Eastsound Fire Hall, Saturday, (06-09-12 at 2 pm) to gather ideas from the public.

WSPRC has been given a legislative mandate to set forth how they will operate state parks in a self-sustainable manner. At the public meeting WSPRC will discuss whether the State Parks system should operate more like:

* An enterprise-based hospitality industry;
* A public conservation asset based mostly on grant and tax funding
Or as community non-profit entities

The intent of the meeting is to gather ideas, answer questions, partner with volunteer groups and promote volunteer support for the park within the community. More information is available at www.parks.wa.gov/Beyond2013.

Coffee and Cookies will be provided. We urge you to attend and let the WSPC staff hear your thoughts, questions and support for Moran State Park.

~ How to get involved: Attending the public meeting where you can share your ideas. You can also review the planning documents , take the State Parks Finance Test and provide your comments to Friends of Moran by e-mail at ..
