Our goal is to leave an invaluable legacy of parks, trails and recreation for the benefit of future generations living in Whatcom County.
Our directors are citizens dedicated to upholding the value of parks, trails and recreation. Ex-Officio members represent all of the city parks departments and park districts in Whatcom County, including Bellingham, Lynden, Blaine, Northwest Park District and Whatcom County Parks and Recreation.
The Whatcom Parks and Recreation Foundation (WPRF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. It was established in 1989 by a small group of people dedicated to upholding the value of parks, trails, and recreational opportunity in Whatcom County.
Through education and fundraising, the foundation facilitates donations of cash, materials and real or personal property for parks, trails and recreation development.
The WPRF will be hosting the Washington State Trails Conference in Bellingham in October 2014. More »
