Support Your Park
America’s National Parks belong to everyone. Support from the public is essential to maintain them. This support can come in many forms: financial, gifts of material goods, volunteer efforts, or political support.
Discover Your Northwest is one of many cooperating associations that assist National Parks.
Many projects at Whitman Mission could only have been accomplished with the help of volunteers. And you don’t even have to come to the site to help. With modern technology people around the world have been able to complete projects for the park. Contact the park VIP coordinator at 509-522-6357 to learn about volunteer opportunities.
Did You Know?
The Whitmans’ mission was important to early Oregon Trail travelers. Those who were sick, tired, or hungry or who needed a wagon fixed would make the side trip to the mission. Some would spend the winter with the Whitmans before continuing on to the Willamette Valley.
