I support Shaw Park and will work to find funding to keep the park running as it has in the past.

The San Juan County Parks Council is trying to help fix a budget shortfall by no longer allowing overnight camping on Shaw Island. If this happens, the park will be day-use only. Ferry services, the General Store, and overall landscape maintenance may be effected. 

The money saved would be a very small part of the budget shortfall. Let's ask them to charge higher use fees, rather than shutting down all camping.
