Sequim: Various types of fauna celebrated at Dungeness River fest

SEQUIM — Hundreds of people attended the annual Dungeness River Festival, but the true guests of honor were the birds, the bugs and the fish.

The festival, held Friday and Saturday at Sequim’s Railroad Bridge Park, focused on the environment and nature.

The Dungeness River and its ecosystems served as centerpiece for the event. Nature walks led by environmental experts covered a variety of topics along the river’s edge.

Numerous displays and exhibits on animals and their habitats lined the paths and walkways of the park.

A photo contest featuring the works of local nature photographers filled the park’s Audubon River Center.

Friday at the festival saw hundreds of Sequim school children show up to experience nature and learn about the Dungeness watershed.

The festival was hosted by the Rainshadow Natural Science Foundation, the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, the National Audubon Society and the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe.
