Come experience the obvious and the less-than-obvious changes that occur with the emergence of a Pacific Northwest spring.

Join the Natural History Society on Tuesday, May 7, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm to observe a rich variety of life through the lens of ecological relationships as well as through the lens of the purely aesthetic.

This will be a day of discoveries, insights, and fun, as we visit both the Lyre Conservation Area and the mouth of the Elwha River, both on the Strait of Juan Fuca, west of Port Angeles. 

Carpools will be organized. Non-drivers should be prepared to pay their driver $12 for gasoline. RSVP to Eileen at for additional information.
