Holidays, Honey, and New Opportunities at the WCPP!

Happy holidays dear friends,

It’s officially winter here in the great PNW making way for some beautifully frosty days at the park! Due to the holiday weekend, we will NOT be having a work party this Sunday. But there is still a lot going on worth checking out over the next few weeks!


After the unfortunate loss of our bee hive this past fall, we have gathered the remaining honeycomb and it’s now available for sale to the public! All the proceeds from the honey sales will go towards purchasing a new queen and bee colony for the coming spring season. Purchases can be made on Tuesdays and Wednesday at the park office or at Sunday work parties for a sliding scale donation.


Starting in January, we will be installing two new art plinths at the park and we’re still in search of artists to feature for the first year! Each artist will receive a $600 stipend for their work. If you’re a local artist creating outdoor ready pieces, please contact us as soon as possible to apply!


The park’s board of directors is currently seeking dedicated community members to join our team! Whether you’re new to the park project or a regular at the park and want to get more involved in planning and leadership, please consider joining the board!


Last call for the winter food drive! There’s one week left in our winter food drive and we could really use your help to fill more boxes for the Thurston County Food Bank! Please bring non-perishable food donations to the park office at 135 Cushing Street weekdays during business hours or to the last work party of 2017 on Sunday December, 31.


Beginning with the first January newsletter, we will be switching from Saturdays to Thursdays for newsletter mail day! Stay tuned for the new delivery date beginning Thursday, January 4, 2018.

Have a joy filled weekend!
