Dungeness River Audubon Center and Railroad Bridge Park are in the heart of the Olympic Discovery Trail, and is a forest and river sanctuary where people of all ages come to connect with nature. We are a leader in providing outdoor classroom learning of river ecology, watershed restoration and protection, fish culture, and bird species and behaviors. The Center exhibits the largest collection of museum-quality mounted birds and other wildlife on the Olympic Peninsula. The Park is in a beautiful spot along the Dungeness River -- the ancestral watershed of the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe -- where 120,000 bridge crossings occur each year and where the public enjoys walks, bike rides, and other outdoor fitness activities. Throughout the year, Center staff is supported by over 100 volunteers in welcoming 10,000 visitors from around the U.S.; mentoring 2,000 youth in the natural sciences; and hosting 500 meetings, presentations, and community events attended by more than 8,000 people.
