ABOUT US



 
The purpose of the Friends of the John Wayne Pioneer Trail Organization is to the preservation, improvement, maintenance, and promotion of the John Wayne Pioneer Trail. More specifically, our job is to demonstrate the grass roots support for the John Wayne Pioneer Trail by raising money and offering volunteer support for the completion and maintenance of the trail.

The Friends of the John Wayne Pioneer Trail was formed in January, 2016 with the goal of representing a broad statewide and national interest in the JWPT. We are a nonprofit, all volunteer 501(c)3 organization registered as a tax exempt charitable organization with the IRS. The FJWPTO is a member of Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition. Board meetings are held online the first Thursday of every odd month.
