ONP to host open house on Aug. 29

Sequim Gazette staff

In celebration and gratitude for area communities’ support and collaboration during the 75-year history of Olympic National Park, Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum invites the public to an open house at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center.

 

Members of area communities are invited to stop by the Olympic National Park Visitor Center between 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29. No formal remarks or presentations are planned, but Creachbaum and other members of the Olympic National Park staff will be on hand to greet and thank all attendees.

Olympic National Park was established 75 years ago, on June 29, 1938, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill that founded the park.

 

Olympic National Park protects 922,651 acres of three distinctly different ecosystems — rugged glacier-capped mountains, more than 70 miles of wild Pacific coast and magnificent stands of old-growth and temperate rain forest.

 

More information about Olympic National Park, including images and a timeline tracking its first 75 years, is available at the park’s website www.nps.gov/olym.
