Please join the Olympia Mountaineers for their annual Conservation and Stewardship presentation, projects planning meeting and hike at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. Meet at the Visitor Center for the Wildlife Refuge at 9:00 am for a staff presentation on the natural history of the refuge and an update on the status of the Estuary restoration.
Exchange ideas on conservation and stewardship projects in the South Sound area for the year. We are looking for outdoor enthusiasts who want to play a small role in helping protect and restore the magnificent gifts of the Pacific Northwest. Get dirty and give back to nature.
At approximately 10:30 a hike of the refuge
grounds follows the meeting. The birding is great this time of year. Bring your binoculars or borrow mine. The Refuge has a $3.00 entrance fee. Many federal
passes are accepted, including Golden Eagle and Golden Age passes. Contact Jim French for additional information [masked]
