StreamFest returns for 12th year
by Sequim Gazette Staff
The 12th annual StreamFest, filled with outdoor educational and recreational opportunities, is just around the corner.
The North Olympic Land Trust will host local residents, businesses, community organizations and government agencies at the festival July 31.
Greg Good, executive director of NOLT, said StreamFest is one of the most popular summer traditions in Clallam County.
The festival highlights the “importance of conserving what we value most in our local community — from family farms to virgin forests, from historic buildings to pristine glacier-fed streams so dear to local salmon,” he said.
The land trust is offering local businesses, agencies and nonprofits the opportunity to participate in the festival through booths, displays and informational tables.
“StreamFest is an incredible opportunity for local businesses and causes to raise their profile among local residents who care deeply for our area’s preservation,” said Good in a news release.
More information and a downloadable application form can be found at www.nolt.org/streamfest. Local vendors providing food and beverages include Mystery Bay Seafood Company, Sunrise Smoked Meats, Sunny Farm Country Store, Olympic Cellars, Ninkasi Brewing Company, Joshua’s Restaurant and Lounge, Ennis Arbor Farm and Graysmarsh Berry Farm.
Raising funds for conservation
A silent auction featuring a wide array of goods from across the community will raise funds to benefit NOLT’s nonprofit mission to conserve ecologically and economically vital habitat across the Olympic Peninsula, NOLT development director Matthew Randazzo said in a news release.
Business and community members who wish to contribute gift certificates, art and saleable goods to the silent auction, as well as people who wish to volunteer for the event, can contact the land trust at 417-1815, ext. 6.
Free event, shuttle
StreamFest is free to the public and a free shuttle service will be available at the east end of the Plaza Shopping Center, 1936 E. First St., between noon-2 p.m. and again between 5-6 p.m.
The event begins at 1 p.m., July 31, at Ennis Arbor Farm, a nearly 50-acre property owned by Jim and Robbie Mantooth, down a forested trail across from Peninsula Golf Club, 824 Lindberg Road, Port Angeles.
