Diversity is the hallmark of Olympic National Park. The park protects 922,651 acres, encompassing three distinctly different ecosystems: rugged glacier-capped mountains, wild Pacific coast, and magnificent old-growth temperate rain forest.
These three ecosystems contain a unique array of habitats and life forms resulting from thousands of years of geographic isolation and extreme gradients of elevation, temperature, and precipitation.
