The state park system turns 100 in March and the calendar celebrates that anniversary with historic photos from the State Parks Archive Collection and other images highlighting each decade.
A 1919 photo shows a public meeting and picnic to discuss the formation of a state park at Deception Pass. Others include Moran State Park in the 1920s, a 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps crew and a State Parks ranger and truck from the 1950s
The large-format calendar is 14-by-19.75 inches when opened and sells for $18.50 plus tax. Proceeds from the calendar sales go to maintain Washington parks.
You can buy the calendar online at myprint.wa.gov, or call State Parks Headquarters at 360-902-8500, but you have to order by Monday to get it by Christmas.
