Port Angeles isn’t the only North Olympic Peninsula city working with Olympic National Park to save a resource deemed important to the region’s tourism economy.
Park Superintendent William Laitner said Monday that said he is working with Forks city leaders to keep the Forks Park and Forest Visitor Information Station open “part of the time, and that might affect the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center’s schedule some.”
On March 3, the park announced that the Hoh center at the gateway to the popular rain forest will be cut back from seven days to five days weekly starting April 4.
The Forks visitor station will be closed throughout the summer, beginning April 1, the park announced, to provide more staffing for the Hoh center.
But this could all change, Laitner revealed Monday.
“We plan to meet again with the city (of Forks) and the Forest Service this week, and by next week have some sort of resolution,” he said.“I’d like to staff a little of both.”
