Where are peninsula's important places?

A series of community maps of important places on the Olympic Peninsula is being prepared.

Scientists with the Institute for Culture and Ecology (www.ifcae.org) and the Pacific Northwest Research Station of the U.S. Forest Service are holding a mapping workshop at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20, at Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

Residents will share ideas about places that are important for economic, recreational, spiritual or other reasons.

These maps will help public and nonprofit organizations understand more about the areas and resources peninsula residents value and use.

The workshop is limited to 20 participants. Contact Kelly Biedenweg at kelly biedenweg@ifcae.org or 206-883-5612 for more information and to register.
