The public is invited to an open house Thursday, Aug. 29, at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center in Port Angeles to help celebrate the park’s 75-year history.
“We hope our neighbors and fellow community members will stop by … so we can honor and thank them for their years of support,” said Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum.
She and other members of park staff will be on hand to greet people from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Olympic National Park was established on June 29, 1938, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill creating the park designation. The park includes three distinct ecosystems: more than 70 miles of Pacific coast, stands of old-growth and temperate rain forest and glacier-capped mountains.
