The Olympic Peninsula Gateway Visitor Center will open a new Art exhibit to ring in this New Year opening for viewing on January 4th.  In this time of short, sometimes gray days a little color is what the doctor ordered.  We have the opportunity to bring a bright pallet to life with a display of sea and landscapes by local Port Hadlock artist, Judy Courtwright.

Clallam Bay Spit and Community Beach County Park is a 33 acre park jointley managed with Washington State Parks.  The Park is located where the nutrient-rich water of the Clallam River empties into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, providing a constant food source for shore and marine birds.  Eagles and osprey can be seen feeding on the beach; viewing marine mammals is an added bonus.  The dynamic hydrology interaction taking place between the Clallam River and the tides provide an opportunity to witness drastic changes to the landscape each time you visit.

Pillar Point County Park & Beach

County Park contains 4.3 acres of land, vault toilets, concrete launch ramp for small boats, and saltwater beach access. Hit the mudflats during crab season or simply hang out on the shoreline, you can't go wrong here. The Park is adjacent to the Highway 112 National Scenic Byway, 35 miles west of Port Angeles. Pull off the road and picnic with a scenery palette that can't be beat. Sitting at home or in your office with your eyes closed, you can feel the soft breeze blowing off the water and hear the shorebirds and gulls cry out in their constant search of food.
