About an hour and a half from Seattle, this 3,000-acre (1214-hectare) wildlife refuge plays host to an incredible number of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish, about 100 species in all. There are 7 miles (11.2 kilometers) of open trails, a fishing area, a new wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, and a visitor's center. A dike separates salt water from freshwater, so you can view a variety of habitats. In autumn, the bird population swells as migratory birds stop off to eat and rest before continuing south.
A monumental natural reserve site in the city of Olympia in Washington is the Woodard bay Natural Resources Conservation Area. The site was constructed and established in 1928. It occupies tremendous significance, and more so due to the fact that it served as a vital processing facility for the logging industry. At present, the site stands as an eloquent sanctuary for an array of birds, river otters, bald eagles, bats and much more. The site has also been listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.
Just south of Olympia, you will find one of the more remarkable animal habitats on the whole West Coast. This deceptively small patch of land plays host to a number of wounded and orphaned wolves. The facility nurses them back to health for release into the wild. The "Howl-In" is held Friday and Saturday evenings at 6:30pm during the summer. The show features storytelling, singing and a howling contest. Admission to the preserve is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors/military personnel/students and $6 for kids.
