Summit Gift Shop and Summit Learning Center

Summit Gift ShopCome see us this spring!

The Gift Shop opens May 1st 11am until 4 pm Everyday until September 30th.

(The Learning Center is open Memorial Day Weekend and then June 15th until Labor Day Weekend.)

The Summit Gift Shop will be open May 1st through the end of September.  The view with a brew is on! Its our Daily Constitution, roast by Local Goods for sample and for sale.  You’ll find we have unique park related gifts which are hard to find anywhere but in our Summit Shop.  We also have the practical; forgot your fleece, your hat or need a journal for the summertime memories? We have it.  All proceeds benefit the state park.

The Summit Learning Center will be open Memorial Day weekend.  We are so excited to share information about the natural and human history at the summit.  You won’t want to miss our “Newtarium” which provides a visitors glimpse of the Rough Skinned Newt.  These bright orange bellied newts are a delight for all ages!  Check our Facebook page for schedules becuase you will want to plan some time to take a guided newt walk to Summit Lake and learn more about these great little amphibians.  Or catch one of our interpretive hosts answering questions at the historic stone tower.

Our interpretive panels illustrating the history of KOVS at the summit will be under revision this year.  We’ll have plenty of help on hand to answer your questions about the history of analog broadcasting from the highest point in the San Juan Islands.  We are hoping to bring some hands on projects to the learning center so kids can learn more about radio waves and broadcasting.

The Learning Center is a project we see evolving with time and money and considerable help from interns and volunteers.  We hope you’ll support Friends of Moran as we coordinate monthly lectures, outdoor education and community programs.

Want to Volunteer at the Summit? We staff the Shop and Center seven days a week throughout the summer.   If you have a few days and love to meet people from around the world and your back yard then ask us about volunteering. Training and support are provided.
You’ll feel great about volunteering with Friends. Staffed everyday by volunteers the gift shop and the nature store (within the learning center) are a great way to meet people from all over the world while cultivating a memorable connection to Moran State Park.  There are numerous other volunteer opportunities, ask us where you can fit in.
