    Take our rebranding project survey and enter drawing!

    Washington State Parks has retired its Centennial brand and is now creating a new brand identity. But we need to hear from you! Taking our surveys will help us better understand what motivates visitors on an emotional level which will inform our new brand identity for the agency. We also are conducting a short survey to help rebrand certain areas of the Junior Ranger Program.

    If you take the surveys by the deadlines, you will have a chance to enter to win a REI gift card at the end of each survey!

    Visit our customer surveys page and select the survey titled "Rebranding Survey" or "Junior Ranger Survey." Thanks for your support!
