Guided Walk: History & Habitat on a Working Waterfront

Date: Thursday, September 24, 2015 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Location: Quiet Cove
Contact info: Betty Carteret, President, Friends of Skagit Beaches, 360-299-8553

From the earliest days of Anacortes, the Guemes Channel waterfront has been at the heart of our working waterfront.  Join us for an interpretive walk to learn about the history of the Guemes waterfront and characters central to the story.  We’ll talk about Anacortes founder Amos Bowman and Melville Curtis, who built the original Curtis Wharf in 1905. Our guest speakers from the Port of Anacortes and Dept. of Ecology will share information on the redevelopment of the waterfront to support the Dakota Creek Industries growing ship building business and the environmental mitigation projects that were undertaken as a result.  They will also share information on the Port’s plans for redeveloping and conducting cleanup work at their Quiet Cove properties. The walk route is flat, paved and handicapped accessible.
