See the Railroad Bridge

It was my privilege to be among the crowd at Friday’s (Nov. 17) bridge-lighting ceremony at the Dungeness River Audubon Center. We were community, joyfully coming together to celebrate a natural wonder.

Before counting down to the lighting, Powell Jones, DRAC director, made brief, heartfelt comments about the center’s mission. His passion is shared by his two staffers, the board and dozens of volunteers.

Powell encouraged our support because it is a unique and special place. Every head was nodding in agreement.

It truly is a sight all lit up.

Do visit, go inside, share a few dollars for its support.

Act locally. It’s ours!
