Join the Friends of Whiskeytown board members and National Park officials for an open house on December 11 at 6 pm in the Redding City Hall Community Room. At the event you will meet the current board members and view a presentation on the groups' accomplishments through the years. Everyone is invited to stop by and learn more the organization, and light refreshments will be served.
The Friends are looking for board members and volunteers to assist with the events and projects they support. If you love Whiskeytown and have a couple of hours to spare each month, please consider how you could help support this beautiful park and lake.
The Friends of Whiskeytown holds an annual fundraiser, the Brandy Creek Luau. Additionally, the organization also supports many important Whiskeytown projects and events such as funding the hiring of students to work on conservation and trails projects; purchasing equipment for the free ranger-led kayak tours; purchasing supplies for the annual Harvest Festival and Old Time Holiday, and the Pick Up Lake Litter event, and operating the park Artist-in-Residence program and completing footbridge and trails projects.
Redding City Hall is located at 777 Cypress Avenue, Redding, California. The Community Room is located across the breezeway to the left of the City Hall building, next to the council chambers.
We look forward to seeing you there!

The Friends of Whiskeytown thanks all those who attended, donated, volunteered and supported the Friends of Whiskeytown's 5th Annual Luau, held on Brandy Creek Beach on September 6, 2014. Over 200 guests enjoyed a Polynesian style buffet, Hawaiian dancing, a fire dancer and the opportunity to bid on amazing live and silent auction items. Each attendee also received a complimentary stemless commemorative wine glass or a beer glass.
All proceeds from the luau will benefit National Park Service programs on Whiskeytown Lake including the kayak program, trails maintenance, and events such as Pick Up Lake Litter (PULL), Harvest Festival, the Holiday Camden House event and the Artist in Residence program. Additionally proceeds will also benefit the 2015 Whiskeytown Lake 50th Anniversary. Thank you for supporting the 5th Annual Luau!
