First two-day StreamFest draws 1,000 to Port Angeles farmland

PORT ANGELES – The first ever two-day StreamFest drew about 1,000 people to the event, which focuses on the conservation and restoration of land.

Robbie Mantooth reported the attendance on Sunday.

She and her husband, Jim, own the land on which StreamFest is held.

The land is being preserved through a conservation agreement with the North Olympic Land Trust.

The annual event, held opposite the Peninsula Golf Club, 824 Lindberg Road, was a fundraiser for the North Olympic Land Trust.

Mantooth also serves as a volunteer communications specialist with the land trust.

This was the first time the festival, held on Sundays in the past, was held on two days.

“The first Saturday was terrific,” Mantooth said.

“It attracted a lot of people with kids. They were dancing and having a good time.”

The Insider’s Tour, which required advance reservations for the $60 tickets, drew 21 people, Mantooth said.

The tour of the Dungeness River Valley habitat lasted much of the day and guests were treated to an organic meal at Nash’s Organic Produce.

“I don’t have any idea what we ate, but it was good,” said John Willits, a North Olympic Land Trust board member who headed the tour.

Demonstrations and lectures were available all afternoon on Sunday, as well as a variety of informational booths.
