The Friends of the Cannery program allows community members to contribute to the preservation and maintenance of the historic site. By becoming a Friend, you can help support the Port Edward Historical Society’s ongoing restoration efforts, educational programs, and community events. Friends also receive exclusive benefits such as free admission, discounts at the gift shop, invitations to special events, and updates on the progress of restoration efforts.

Community support is crucial to the success of the North Pacific Cannery National Historic Site. The cannery is not only a significant part of the region’s history, but it also provides important educational opportunities for visitors and locals alike.
