RAYMOND, Wash. — An Environmental Education Fair is taking place all three days of the Willapa Harbor Days Festival in Raymond, Wash. The fair, sponsored by the Willapa Environmental Working Group, is Friday through Sunday, Aug. 3 through 5, with a booth near the Seaport Museum.
There are speakers, educational materials, hands-on events for kids, door prizes and more.
Starting at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, presentations address environmental topics, including “Bees, Nature and Us” by biologist and lifelong beekeeper Paul Young and “Tying Our Economy to the Environment” by Jim Sayce, executive director of the Pacific County Economic Development Council.
Additionally, Nicole Apelian, Ph.D., a star from the reality TV show “Alone,” talks about how our personal well-being is enhanced by connecting to nature and community, and answers questions about her time surviving in the wilderness with little more than her wits and her knife.
In addition to other prize drawings, plants that attract and sustain honeybees will be awarded, and the grand prize award is a Nicole Apelian-designed Emergency Survival Kit.
