The Foundation relies on membership dues as our main source of income to help fund improvements, trail restoration projects, and environmental education programs for one of the nation’s largest city-owned parks. Since 2001, the Foundation has invested nearly $3 million into Eagle Creek Park, which was made possible by membership support.Become a member today!
