Please note that our membership benefits have changed.

As of January 1, 2019, we may no longer offer new or renewing members free day-use admission to Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. Current members that joined or renewed prior to this date will continue to receive free admission for the duration of their annual membership. These changes are necessary for Friends of Sutter’s Fort to be consistent with California State Parks policies.
