New Park Management

The Friends of Mt. Spokane thanks Steve Christensen, who is retiring after a 32-year career with Washington State Parks. Steve managed Mt. Spokane State Park for 17 years and we were blessed by his service and accomplishments. Were going to miss him, because among other things hes no slouch around a chain saw, said The Friends of Mt Spokane President, Cris Currie. THANK YOU again, Steve. Enjoy retirement.

The new Manager for Mt. Spokane is Diana Dupuis. We welcome Diana and look forward to many years of work with her.

About The Friends of Mount Spokane State Park

We are blessed to have a mountain in the backyard of our urban sprawl. Visit Mt. Spokane and see all the beauty and adventure altitude brings. (Visit Photo Album)

The Friends of Mt. Spokane State Park was formed in 1995 as a means for coordinating volunteer involvement in the Park and as a vehicle for raising funds to support Park projects. It became a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization in 1996. It is governed by a 15 member, broadly based, volunteer board of directors which meets several times a year. Meetings are open to all and offer an opportunity to present and discuss issues affecting Park management, use, and protection with Park staff and volunteers.

The Mt. Spokane State Park Advisory Committee was formed just prior to the Friends Group in 1995 with members chosen by the Director of the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. The mission for that group was to assist in the creation of a consensus based master plan for the Park. Since that objective was achieved, the Committee was formally dissolved in 2013.

We encourage you to support The Friends of Mt Spokane State Park by making a donation or becoming a volunteer. The work of the Friends Group is chronicled in the annual newsletter known as the Moose Call. If you are interested in receiving more information about the group, contact Cris Currie, President, at
