For the eighth consecutive year the staff and volunteers at the Dungeness River Audubon Center are preparing for the Holiday Nature Mart.

The event brings together a collage of unique and creative handcrafted gifts ranging from ornaments and scarves, to pet toys and treats.

“It started out as a one-day event and now it’s a two-day event and seems to grow each year,” Julie Jackson, chairman for Nature Mart, said. “Some of the crafters have been meeting since the beginning of the year to create and design their items.”

Each purchase at Nature Mart supports the center’s educational programs, including all proceeds acquired from this year’s planned raffle for a Cowichan wool sweater.

Other activities include a bake sale, wreath making and the Sequim Rotary Club will be selling lunches.

Sequim city councilors agreed in late July to extend a moratorium for six months on manufactured home developments so city staff and the planning commission could better analyze the Sequim Municipal Code’s language on private streets. Discussions about private streets in manufactured home developments came up late last year during the binding site plan application for Lavender Meadows, a 217-site manufactured home park at the intersection of North Sequim Avenue and Port Williams Road. It was approved earlier this year. Sequim Gazette photo by Matthew Nash
