From the Nisqually Reach Nature Center (NRNC)
* Our Mission
To promote the understanding, appreciation, and conservation of the Nisqually Estuary through education, interpretation, and citizen science.

* Who are We?
NRNC was established in 1982 as an extension of the Black Hills Audubon Society, and in 1986 it became an independent nonprofit entity. NRNC has a proud history of reaching thousands of community members in the South Sound each year with our messages of environmental stewardship and conservation.

* Where is NRNC located?
We are located in northeast Olympia at Luhr Beach, on the west side of the Nisqually estuary. Through a cooperative agreement with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, which operates the adjacent public boat launch, NRNC occupies a building on the site of a historic fishing and hunting camp established by Bill Luhr, Sr.

Our location is ideal for illustrating the beauty and value of a pristine estuary: with Mt. Rainier in the background, McAllister Creek flows into Puget Sound in front of the Center and the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge lies a short distance across the water.
