Business Sponsors 2016:










Feiro has partnered with the NOAA Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary (OCNMS) to vision and assess the feasibility of a new joint visitor facility in Port Angeles.

Our vision is a magnet on the Port Angeles waterfront that would draw tens of thousands of visits a year, from community members and visitors to our area to learn about marine life on the Olympic Peninsula and jump start their explorations of our remarkable natural habitats.



Currently (March 2016), Feiro, OCNMS and the City of Port Angeles are conducting a series of feasibility studies regarding whether City Pier is an appropriate and feasible site for a new joint visitor facility between Feiro and OCNMS. The location fared well in an intitial assessment of lcoations in Port Angeles. As of now, we have studied whether it would be physically and financially possible to construct and operate a facility of a reasonable size on the pier. We will host a public forum in May 2016 to take public input for the overall master plan for City Pier and implications for building design.

Work continues to progress on this effort, and we are actively seeking donations to support our time and hiring the expertise of local consultants, such as Dave Shreffler and Scott Schaffer.
