Celebrate State Parks' 100th birthday with free events

Washington State Parks will soon celebrate its 100th birthday. The state parks system is one of the oldest in the nation, established on March 19, 1913.
In honor of the birthday, all state parks will have free entry March 30.
State parks in our area include Wallace Falls and Mount Pilchuck state parks in Snohomish County.
In Island County, there are a few more: Deception Pass, one of the state's most visited; Camano Island, Cama Beach, South Whidbey, Joseph Whidbey, Fort Ebey and Fort Casey state parks.
In addition to the free day, Cama Beach and Camano Island state parks have events planned, including live music, cultural and educational events. Activities are planned at Camano Island, but the main activities are at Cama Beach.
