Secretary-Friends of Hoko River State Park

That’s Right! There are gardens growing at Hoko River State Park. The Friends of Hoko River State Park have potatoes in for the September Potato Dig/Seed Swap. The Friends Group will be hosting tours at the Cowan Heritage Site on Sundays from 2-4 p.m. in July, August and September, following recommended health guidelines. In addition to the gardens, renewed pioneer orchard, demonstration garden plots, and Little Hoko River Trail, we have new attractions: Kiwi trees, Hugelmounds, Quinoa, and more.

Plan to stop by along the Hoko/Ozette Road, just off of Highway 112, a mile or so west of Sekiu. Share garden stories and more. Volunteers are needed for trail and garden work. Contact 360-963-2442 for more information or view Friends of Hoko River State Park Facebook page.
