SEQUIM — Building on its initial investment of $20,000 to help establish the Dungeness River Audubon Center, the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation has awarded a $50,000 challenge grant to Audubon Washington toward the center’s capital campaign.
The donation will match other donations on a one-to-one basis up to the amount of the grant.
“The foundation’s directors clearly embraced the vision of connecting people with nature in the Sequim area, and have been instrumental in getting the popular center up and running,” said Jeff Parsons, executive director of Audubon Washington.
“This kind of enthusiastic support helps attract participants, volunteers and other donors to this engaging facility.”
The center, located in the 28-acre Railroad Bridge Park, is a partnership of the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, Rainshadow Natural Science Foundation, Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society and Audubon Washington.
