Just an extra $35 for Membership

With a minimum donation of just $35, you can support the future of Eagle Creek Park by becoming a member of the Foundation along with fellow park neighbors, active outdoor enthusiasts, and nature lovers. 

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.
