Friends of Lime Kiln Society (FOLKS) was launched in the 2011 to provide an awe inspiring experience for Park visitors through support & development of educational programs and activities related to Lime Kiln Point State Park’s unique location, diverse ecosystems, and historic structures.

Lime Kiln Point State Park is one of the most beloved parks in the state and attracts visitors from all over the world.  This Park’s precious 40 acres and shoreline contain examples of the Salish Sea ecosystem, a historic lighthouse and lime kiln, as well as premier ocean side views of orca whales many days of the year.   This microcosm of the Salish Sea serves as a spectacular educational platform with boundless opportunities for an interactive learning experience!

FOLKS receives zero funding from Washington State Parks.  Although, we are allowed to use the Parks resources so that, in turn, FOLKS is a resource for Washington State Parks, its visitors and the San Juan Island community.  Our strength is in our partnerships, volunteers, and our “can do” spirit… come join the fun with TEAM FOLKS!
