NAHCOTTA A group of 19 students from the University of Washington, and their instructor, Jennifer Ruesink, visited the Willapa Bay Interpretive Center on Saturday, May 7. A number of other groups have already toured the center before it actually opens for the summer season. These students are studying the ecology of the area in their biology classes at the university and spent three days here.
In the past there have been tourists from Washington, Oregon, other states and many other countries that have been to the facility and many have commented about how wonderful and educational it is. People also have been always impressed by the friendliness and knowledge of the volunteers who run the facility.
A concern is though that there are numerous residents of the local area who have never toured the facility and some do not even know where it is. All from the local area are encouraged to visit. The Willapa Bay Interpretive Center will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, as well as Mondays on holiday weekends from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Center is located on 273rd Street on the bay in Nahcotta.
