Oregon State Parks Foundation is the Oregon’s statewide not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing Oregon’s state parks. OSPF is devoted to protecting and improving Oregon’s outstanding natural, scenic, cultural, historic and recreational sites for the enjoyment of present and future generations. To date, the Foundation has provided over $8.5 million in support of Oregon State Parks since its creation in 1995. These funds, generously donated from private donors and foundations, have supported such projects as restoring Vista House at Crown Point, helping to maintain Oregon’s Lighthouses, and purchasing important property at Iwetemlaykin State Heritage Site near Wallowa Lake.  More recently we have supported important archeological and restoration work at Ft.Yamhill, a nationally significant State Heritage site.
