For over 35 years, NRNC has been monitoring the health of South Puget Sound with the help of citizen stewards. Our Community Science programs include Pigeon Guillemot Surveys and Forage Fish Beach Spawning Surveys. We have also partnered with other groups on Larval Crab Surveys, the Mussel Watch Program, and the DNR ANeMoNe project.

For 35 years, the Nisqually Reach Nature Center has offered environmental education to thousands of youth and young adults at Luhr Beach in Olympia, Washington, and in the classroom. The Center provides field trip opportunities, supplemental classroom activities and summer camps, all aimed at sharing the beauty and uniqueness of the Nisqually Estuary and learning the values of conservation, particularly with regard to South Puget Sound.
NRNC COVID-19 STATEMENT
The Nisqually Reach Nature Center continues to evaluate all scheduled programming and events in light of public health concerns. To aid public health efforts to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, we have had to postpone / cancel up coming events. We continue to follow guidance from the Washington Department of Health (DOH) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) regarding social distancing. At this point the center is still closed to the public.
We are hoping we will be able to open soon in 2021.
