CCC Interpretive Signs at Cornet Bay

Out of the thousands of people that come to the Cornet Bay Retreat Center each year, few realize that they are staying on the same grounds as the Civilian Conservation Corps did while they were working to develop Deception Pass State Park during the 1930s and 40s.  Our AmeriCorps Interpreter, Sam Wotipka, and Park Ranger Kim Horton set out to change this by creating a set of interpretive panels designed to highlight the rich history of the area.

Many hours went into the research and design of these signs, which the Foundation then paid to have fabricated and installed.  We hope that they will help visitors appreciate this historic site for years to come.  The panels can be viewed below.
