The NPS Centennial at San Juan Island

Celebrate the National Park Service's 100th anniversary at San Juan Island National Historical Park! Become a Jr. Ranger or participate in one of our many special Centennial events taking place throughout the park. As 2016 kicks off a second century of stewardship and community engagement, we hope you join in on the fun!

On Thursday, August 25, 2016, it will be our honor to host Coast Salish tribal communities during our National Park Service Founder's Day celebration. The Lummi and Saanich Nations will dedicate a Reef Net Captain Totem Pole and two Salmon Story Boards to San Juan Island National Historical Park to commemorate the National Park Service's Centennial.

A public ceremony will be held at 2:00 p.m. on the spiritual site of their ancestors' village at Pe'pi'ow'elh (English Camp) - fostering greater mutual understanding and respect between all cultures through a shared love of this beautiful place.

Following the dedication, vendors will be onsite until 6 p.m. with local food, artwork, and information about the San Juan Islands. All are invited to this free, family-friendly day of celebration.
