Discover Your Northwest promotes the discovery of Northwest public lands, enriches the experience of visitors, and builds community stewardship of these special places today and for generations to come. Towards this goal, Discover Your Northwest operates on-site educational bookstores that provide visitors with high-quality books, toys, DVDs, and other items that help them appreciate the natural and historical significance of the area.
At Olympic, Discover Your Northwest funds the publication of the park’s winter and summer newspapers as well as educational trail guides. Discover Your Northwest has also made important contributions to support the park’s volunteer program, exhibits at visitor centers and the Perspectives Speakers’ Series.
Proceeds from annual passes benefit Olympic National Park. Eighty percent of the fee revenue collected in Olympic National Park remains in the park, where it is used for projects that directly benefit park visitors, including trail maintenance, campground improvements, accessibility upgrades and visitor services.
