Adopt an Airport program

The Adopt-an-Airport Program of WSDOT Aviation uses volunteer groups to help maintain the 15 state-operated airports in Washington.

Any group or organization can sign up for the "Adopt-An-Airport" program, which offers civic clubs and other groups an opportunity to contribute to their community and state while helping to preserve and enhance the state airports. Volunteers don't need an aviation background to become involved in the program, but by helping out, they can learn what is involved in the operation of an airport and the importance of its economic value to the local community.
