RRNW Elwha River Restoration Field Trip
National Park Service Wilderness Information Center
Port Angeles, WA
Share this event:

RRNW is sponsoring a fall field trip to the Elwha River to observe the amazing transformation to the river, river delta and ecosystem following the 2012 removal of the Elwha Dam and the 2014 removal of the Glines Canyon dam. Join us for a 1-day tour with Jamie Michel of the Coastal Watershed Institute, Jennifer Bountry of the US Bureau of Reclamation, and George Pess of National Marine Fisheries Service!

We will work our way from the former Elwha Dam Overlook to the river delta, led by Elwha River restoration design and planning experts the entire way. There will be ample opportunities for social gathering and storytelling on both Friday and Saturday evenings in Port Angeles. Details to follow.
