The Darrington Archery Range is approximately 262 acres of forested land owned by the Snohomish County Parks Department and the Darrington School District.  The range has a large practice flat with over 20 target butts at different yardages marked.  Five ranges with 28 targets each that stay in place year round.  These ranges are fondly known as the Dylan (handicapped accessible), the Deer, the Bobcat, the Cougar and the Coyote Range.  These ranges go from flat to very steep and challenging courses.  Ranges or target butts are sponsored by individual archers, archery clubs, businesses and even local townsfolk.  To the town of Darrington, the archers that return from around the country and the world to compete here year after year are like an extended family.  When they return to Darrington we are happy to welcome them to our town and our homes as we renew old friendships and make new ones as well.

Glacier Peak Institute (GPI) Empowering youth through action based education to build resilient rural communities and ecosystems encompassing the Glacier Peak region.

GPI bridges the gap between classroom lessons and real world applications. Our interactive programs combine nature-based curriculum with learner led research and problem solving.  We expand community by building relationships between schools, residents, tribes, universities, students, human service organizations, government agencies, businesses and their local ecosystems. By empowering students and community to identify, design and solve today’s problems, we all build interdependent resilience for posterity. Ecosystems spread beyond school district boundaries, opportunities often do not. While rural youth connect with the natural environment, urban youth have access to connect with the STEM industry. Through connecting the positive characteristics of urban and rural environments, we provide cultural and educational exchanges to find diverse solutions and increase opportunities for all.

The Darrington Clinic Guild serves their community by supporting the needs of the Darrington Clinic. Established in 1958 as the Darrington Hospital Guild, they originally raised funds to sustain a much-needed medical facility in their remote town. The original clinic was a Sears mail order building, donated and constructed completely by the townspeople of Darrington.  They sold bonds, raised money by holding fundraisers such as bazaars, dances, teas, style shows, luncheons, and other events to raise money for the building and equipment.  The hospital eventually transformed into the modern clinic currently in operation today.  The current Guild members continue the same tradition of giving by supporting the clinic through building maintenance, equipment purchases and staff education.  We’re proud to say several members have been with the organization since it’s inception over 50 years ago. The Darrington Clinic Guild is a 501(3)c organization, and all donations are tax deductible.

The current board of directors is as follows:

  • Susan Neumann, President
  • Julie Schillhammer, Secretary
  • Irene Kuntz, Treasurer
