Free Entrance to Olympic National Park

 The National Park Service announced today that the public will be invited to experience all national parks, including Olympic National Park, without entrance fees, on four days in 2019.

The 2019 entrance fee-free days are:

  • January 21: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • April 20: First Day of National Park Week
  • August 25: National Park Service Birthday
  • September 28th:National Public Lands Day
  • November 11: Veterans Day

“National parks connect all of us with our country’s amazing nature, culture and history,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds. “The days that we designate as fee free for national parks mark opportunities for the public to participate in service projects, enjoy ranger-led programs, or just spend time with family and friends exploring these diverse and special places. We hope that these fee-free days offer visitors an extra incentive to enjoy their national parks in 2019.”

Magic Of Cinema: “I am Not Your Negro” @ Peninsula College

Magic Of Cinema: I am Not Your Negro

 

This documentary is based largely on Civil Rights writer James Baldwin’s personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends- Medgar Evers, Malcom X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of this manuscript.

 

“The Decline of the Big Leaf Maple” @ Olympic NaturalFResource Center
Jan 25 @ 7:00 pm

“The Decline of the Big Leaf Maple”

Our next Evening Talk is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 25th.  We are fortunate to have Dr. Daniel Omdal,                   Forest Pathologist for Washington State Department of Natural Resources Wildfire Division. Join us at 7:00 pm       in the ONRC’s Hemlock Forest Room for another great Evening Talk.

Title:  Western Washington Forest Health with a Focus on the Decline of Bigleaf Maple.

As of the end of 2018, there has been no sign of recovery of sick and dying Bigleaf Maple though Western Washington.   Forest pathologists at Washington’s DNR have been investigating the increase in symptoms and mortality in the Bigleaf Maple trees since 2011.   Dr. Omdal will discuss the results of a recently completed Masters Project from the University of Washington, which investigated the spatial patterns and environmental variable associated with the decline.   An update on Swiss Needle Cast Disease and its impacts on Douglas-fir will also be provided during the Evening Talk.

Please join us for our first Evening Talk of 2019!   Evening Talks at ONRC is funded through the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community.    Refreshments will be served and a potluck of your favorite dessert is encouraged.  For more information contact:  Frank Hanson at 374-4556 or fsh2@uw.edu.
