Who are the Friends of Cape Meares Lighthouse & Wildlife Refuge, Inc.? A group of dedicated people who care about the natural beauty and the historic Cape Meares Lighthouse. The Friends of Cape Meares Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge is a Cooperative Association partner with Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Cooperating Associations, also known as "Friends Groups" are private 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations formed by citizens to provide and support the educational and interpretive services of the park. These organizations rely heavily on volunteer support in all areas of operation. Friends support state parks by operating museums and interpretive stores and providing additional educational programs at the park. Friends help support these projects by raising funds for park projects and historical renovations and building new park facilities. The Friends of Cape Meares Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge nonprofit status allows us to sell memberships, write grants, receive qualified donations and receive donated materials.
