In 1994, the Forest Service [“USFS”] opened the Multnomah Falls Visitor Center, and the Friends of Multnomah Falls [“FOMF”] was created shortly thereafter, to provide the public with experienced, well trained and personable volunteers to support the USFS’s endeavors. Visitors to Multnomah Falls want information about the human and natural history of the Falls, the trails near the Falls and other sites they might visit while they are in Oregon and Washington. FOMF trains our volunteers to answer these questions and how to help the USFS with other visitor services at Multnomah Falls. As one of the many benefits volunteers receive, is that after 16 hours of volunteer service each year you earn a NW Forest Pass from the USFS.
Each budding springtime, our volunteers and members renew their skills and find new ones, by attending our group training sessions hosted jointly by FOMF and the USFS. Each relaxing summer, our volunteers and members gather outdoors in the sunlight for our family picnic, to connect with each other, and to enjoy each other’s company. In the crisp and shorter days of fall, our Annual Meeting and mid-day banquet is another opportunity to socialize while the Board officers review our year’s performance, and our membership approves the coming year’s budget and elects our new slate of officers for the coming year. This Annual Meeting is usually held in early November.
