With changes proposed to the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, federal and county officials are hosting an open house to provide information and gather input from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, May 15, at the Sequim Prairie Grange Hall, 290 Macleay Road.
Hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Clallam County, the open house details proposed improvements to the parking area and restrooms at the refuge on Voice of America Road.
Planning for the project is in its initial stages. “All ideas, suggestions and comments are welcome,” refuge officials said in a press release last week.
The purpose of this project is to provide adequate refuge parking and restroom facilities while increasing public safety and reducing long-term environmental impacts, officials said.
Planning for this project is separate from the Dungeness Recreation Area Master Planning effort.
Most of the proposed changes would occur in areas leased from Clallam County within the Dungeness Recreation Area.
