Come and learn about the history of Peninsula oystering at the Willapa Bay Interpretive Center in Nahcotta. 

The walls of the interpretive center are covered with quotes, photographs, a chronology of the oyster industry and a 20-foot mural of the bay. 

Among the artifacts in the center is a 14-foot double-ended Shoalwater Bay dinghy built in the late 1920s. 

The cedar-sided center is one of the few spots on the bay, other than Leadbetter Point, where visitors can find easy access to the rocky shores and muddy floors of the bay on non-private property. A stairway allows access. 

The center is open summer Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning in May, manned by volunteers.
