About Friends of Skagit Beaches

Friends of Skagit Beaches was established in 2008 by a group of Skagit County Beach Watcher Volunteers to develop local financial support for the WSU Skagit County Beach Watcher program through memberships, donations and other fundraising activities.  We are a registered 501c3 nonprofit corporation with the State of Washington.

Friends of Skagit Beaches is closely affiliated funding partner for the Coastal Volunteer Partnership at Padilla Bay and the program coordinator serves as an ex-officio member of our Board of Directors.  Our members include active volunteers and community supporters who through their membership fees and donations support local marine education and stewardship programs.

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is made up of members who volunteer their time and experience to the management and guidance of Friends. Current members may nominate and vote for Board members. Board elections are held in January at our Annual Meeting.
