About Us
Friends of Lime Kiln Society, aka FOLKS, is a group of islanders dedicated to supporting and sustaining Lime Kiln Point State Park.  This 36-acre park, located on the west side of San Juan Island, Washington, is considered one of the best places in the world to view orca whales from a land-based facility.

FOLKS will work to preserve, restore and enhance Lime Kiln Point State Park as a living laboratory for ecosystem science, understanding and appreciation.  We seek to inspire awe into action!

Friends of Lime Kiln Society’s mission is to provide a unique experience for visitors through support & development of educational programs and activities related to Lime Kiln Point State Park’s extraordinary location, diverse ecosystems, and historic structures.

To enhance learning experiences at the park through assistance with a diverse blend of recreational, cultural, historical and educational programs.

To promote cooperation between all organizations who use the park to develop a cohesive interpretive program and to encourage support by those organizations to contribute to the improvement of the park facilities that they utilize.
