Olympic Hot Springs Road Closed
The Elwha Valley's Olympic Hot Springs Road is closed to public entry beyond the Altair Campground during removal of the Glines Canyon Dam. Olympic Hot Springs is not accessible from the Elwha.
Olympic National Park seeks plant-loving individuals to assist in revegetating the Elwha River, the Park's largest watershed. Volunteers will assist National Park Service staff with various aspects of the project, including native plant propagation and care, replanting of dewatered reservoirs in the Elwha River Valley, and post-installation site-monitoring. Volunteer opportunities with the Elwha Revegetation Project take place at the Matt Albright Native Plant Center and in the dewatered reservoirs of Lake Mills and Lake Aldwell in the Elwha River Valley.
Year-round volunteer opportunities are available at the Matt Albright Native Plant Center, located east of Port Angeles in Robin Hill Farm County Park.
Opportunities to assist with replanting the dewatered reservoirs in the Elwha River Valley will begin in fall 2012; planting season runs from October into March.
