Dungeness River Audubon Center closes

Because of state guidelines to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Dungeness River Audubon Center will be closed through Tuesday, March 31.

All events, meetings and gatherings hosted by, or held, at the center are postponed, and none have been rescheduled.

The closure may extend into April and May. Updates and news will be posted on the River Center webpage at www.dungenessrivercenter.org and on the River Center’s Facebook page.

Cancellations include all field trips and events for the Olympic BirdFest, slated for April 17-19. Registration for next year’s BirdFest will begin Jan. 1, 2021.

Ceremonial groundbreaking for the new facility, planned for mid-April, has been postponed to a later date (to be announced).

However, Railroad Bridge Park, the Olympic Discovery Trail, Railroad Bridge and the River Center’s sanitized public restrooms will be open during daylight hours.
