Founded in 1993, the Friends of Crater Lake National Park is a non-profit organization cooperating with the National Park Service in the stewardship of the natural and cultural resources of Crater Lake National Park. Cooperation may be provided through supporting appropriate visitor opportunities to observe, experience and understand the character of the area; working with park staff in completing special projects; and taking the lead for some fund raising projects.

Members of the Friends of Crater Lake National Park come from all walks of life and from all parts of the U.S. and the world. Many are alumni of the park. We share the common goal of protecting and preserving the most precious and unique of America's crown jewels: Crater Lake National Park.
