Dan will present fantastic photos of the scenery, birds, mammals, flowers, and insects which he encountered there on a springtime visit in 2013. This program comes highly recommended by Skagit Audubon, which enjoyed it last May.

COMPANY ABANDONS CRUDE OIL AS PART OF SHIPPING EXPANSION PLAN

IN GRAYS HARBOR

Groups applaud decision, caution oil spill threats from two remaining proposals persist

Hoquiam, WA – One of the three companies proposing crude oil shipping terminals in Grays Harbor said it will abandon its plans to handle crude oil in comments submitted to state and local agencies in late November 2015. The company’s comments state “REG has concluded that its future plans at Grays Harbor do not include handling crude oil.” The Quinault Indian Nation, Stand Up To Oil campaign, and community groups are applauding REG’s decision, but say they will continue to closely monitor the company’s planned expansion of its existing terminal. Renewable Energy Group (REG), an Iowa-based company, purchased Imperium Terminal Services during the environmental review process.
