Washington State Parks is now selling its 2013 wall calendar, one that celebrates the park system’s 100th anniversary.
The calendar depicts Washington’s large and diverse state park system, which turns 100 years old next year. Established on March 19, 1913, it is one of the oldest state park systems in the country. The calendar features historic photos and graphic images from every decade, giving a feel for the park system that today receives approximately 40 million visits a year.
The historic photos come from the State Parks Archive Collection. Among the featured photos are one of a 1919 public meeting and picnic to discuss Deception Pass becoming a state park, a family picnicking at Moran State Park in the 1920s, a Civilian Conservation Corps crew from the 1930s and a State Parks ranger and truck from the 1950s.
Proceeds from the $18.50 calendar sales go to operate and maintain Washington state parks.
