Party on the Pacific Plate

Thank You for a Successful Event!

Thank you for celebrating our coastal wonder of a park at Party on the Pacific Plate on Saturday, September 23rd! We are so grateful to the extended community that made this event possible…our sponsors, event attendees, National Park Service colleagues, community businesses, volunteers, and PRNSA staff. Scroll down to view beautiful photos from the event!

Thanks to our combined efforts we raised $450,000 to support our conservation, education, and community building work. We’re excited to share that included in that total is $150,000 to support our growing Youth in Parks work. If you have an outstanding pledge or would like to donate, please click here.
