SEQUIM — The Green River Mountain Men will present their annual rendezvous at the Peninsula Longrifle’s location just south of Sequim this coming Saturday and Sunday.

The rendezvous is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day off Slab Camp Road just off of Lost Mountain Road; directional signs will be placed along the way.

The re-enactment of the annual fur trappers’ gatherings in the early 1800s features historic-style campsites, traders and period-dressed re-enactors and hands-on opportunities for the entire family.

Activities include black-powder shoots, primitive archery, seminars on a wide variety of fur trade skills and lore, music, children’s activities and a traders’ row.

Admission is free. A shooter’s fee is $25 per person for ages 13 and older.

The Green River Mountain Men is a nonprofit organization of men and women dedicated to educating the community about the pre-1840s fur trade era.
