Three Parks in One

Olympic National Park is a land of beauty and variety.  A day's exploration can take you from breathtaking mountain vistas with meadows of wildflowers to colorful ocean tidepools.  Nestled in the valleys are some of the largest remnants of ancient forests left in the country.  Olympic is like many magical parks in one.  Take some time to explore its different faces!

DYK fisher release

Fishers (members of the weasel family, related to minks and otters) were reintroduced to Olympic National Park in 2008-10. They are native to the forests of Washington, including the Olympic Peninsula, but disappeared due to overtrapping in the late 1800s/early 1900s and habitat loss.
