Natural History Series Continues
Thursday evening, March 20th, there will be another fascinating talk in the Natural History Series about the Hudson’s Bay Company, fur traders, trappers, indigenous peoples and the waterways in and around the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. Led by Dr. Doug Wilson, a National Park Service archeologist at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, the talk will explore how our river system has been used for trade, agriculture, logging, and shipping.
This is part of a series of history talks about our hometown area sponsored by the Friends of Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. Tickets are available at the Old Liberty Theater at $10 for Friends members and $15 for non-members (but you can get the member price if you join at the door!). Funds raised go to support the many programs available on the Refuge, including habitat restoration, school tours and educational programs at the Cathlapotle Plankhouse. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the lecture starts at 7:15 pm. The Old Liberty Theater is at 115 North Main Avenue in Ridgefield.
