The expedition will end Sunday at 12:00 noon with a group picture.

There are plenty of tent and RV spots available. Your RV will need to be self contained, but we do have the resources to power 3 RV’s if needed. There are ample tent sites around the property.

You need to bring all your own food and camping supply’s. There is a shower on site, and two porta potties as well. The main shop is where the classes and presentations are held. We have a wood stove and sitting area inside, as well as a cook station. There is also a BBQ there if needed.

13. Any other camping supplies you may need.

You will also want rain gear – the quiet material kind, two pairs of hiking boots or shoes, and plenty of extra socks. It can rain in May.

Directions to site will be given along with trip confirmation, but it is in the Lake Crescent area, west of Port Angeles WA.

There are only 12 attendees per trip, as to ensure a very up close, personal experience with Olympic Project members.

We run a tight ship, but we also have a blast doing our research in this beautiful location. You will not be disappointed with this expedition. The money raised on these trips goes directly back into the research. It is our only source of income that supports the research we conduct year round.

If you’d like to register for the May trip, please let me know, and I’ll give you directions, and payment info.
