On behalf of Seattle Rotary #4’s Environmental Sustainability Committee and NatureBridge, I’d like to invite you to the Rotary Elwha Exploration Day on November 6, 2022. Since removal of two major dams the Elwha was completed in 2014, the Elwha ecosystem has undergone radical changes and made huge strides toward restoring the Elwha’s legendary salmon runs and many other ecological functions. During Elwha Exploration Day, you’ll be led by NatureBridge’s environmental educators to explore in detail the changes that have occurred in the River since the dams came down. The day will begin with registration, coffee, banana bread, and a classroom session at the NatureBridge campus on Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park, then continue with exploration of the Elwha River itself.

The event is free but registration is required and donations to NatureBridge are strongly encouraged. Sign-up and additional information on the Elwha Exploration Day is available here. NatureBridge is holding registrations open for Rotary only for the next week, then will open to the general public.

More information about NatureBridge and its mission of science-based environmental education in the nation’s National Parks is available here.

The National Park Service’s page on the history of the Elwha and ecological restoration is available here.

Space is limited so please do not delay in signing up. We hope to see you there.
