ONP celebrates 75 years with online memory album

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Olympic National Park and the National Park Service is inviting park visitors and neighbors to join in remembering and celebrating the park’s first 75 years.

Park visitors, neighbors, employees and alumni — anyone with memories of time spent in Olympic National Park — are invited to share their recollections in a new online memory album.

The memory album, available at, is an online venue where people can share their photos, videos or written memories of experiences in Olympic National Park. The album is made possible through the generous support of park partner Discover Your Northwest.
“Olympic National Park holds special memories for countless people across the country and across the decades,” said Sarah Creachbaum, ONP superintendent.

Additional information about Olympic’s first 75 years, including a park timeline and historical photos, has been added to the park’s official website,

Limited edition 75th anniversary pins are available through Discover Your Northwest bookstores around the park, including the Olympic National Park Visitor Center, the Recreation Information Station in Forks and the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center. Olympic 75th pins, along with a full range of books, maps and educational products, also are available through Discover Your Northwest's online store at or by calling 565-3195.
