State Park Geology Signs

Using donations received from the folks who attend our events, the Jefferson Land Trust Geology Group has produced and donated geologic interpretive signs to our three local state parks: Fort Worden, Fort Townsend, and Fort Flagler. Each sign includes information about the glacial history which is fundamental to understanding our local geology. Each sign also includes park-specific information.

We hope you will take a moment to enjoy these signs when you visit your local state parks.

FORT WORDEN STATE PARK: Follow the road down to the beach area. At the north end of the boat-trailer parking lot adjacent to the pier, there is a large ‘pay station’ signboard. The geology sign is on the north-facing side of this signboard. Preview of this sign Stories in Motion you see at top of this posting. Click here to view sign details…

FORT TOWNSEND STATE PARK: Follow the entry road to the welcome-registration kiosk. Just beyond the kiosk, there is a park signboard with a small sign designed specifically for youngsters. Directly behind the signboard is an old open-air phone booth and our main interpretive sign is installed inside the booth. Click here to view sign details…

FORT FLAGLER STATE PARK: Follow the road into the park and, at the 4-way stop, turn left toward the camping registration kiosk. Continue on this winding road all the way to its end at the beach camping area. There is a large signboard at the road side and the interpretive sign is on its east-facing side. Click here to view sign details…
