Become a member of the
Dungeness River Audubon Center
at Railroad Bridge Park!

Thousands of people enjoy the River Center and Railroad Bridge Park every year – to explore nature, exercise, walk and ride bikes along the Olympic Discovery Trail, picnic in the park, go fishing, and enjoy the scenic beauty.

Railroad Bridge Park is not a city or county park – it operates through the generosity of your memberships and donations to the Dungeness River Audubon Center.

The park is operated by the River Center and its partners, the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, and Audubon Washington.

We hope that you will join us!

Give Today!

The Dungeness River Audubon Center, and its partners, the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, and the National Audubon Society, are creating a legacy on the north Olympic Peninsula for generations to come.

We are delighted by the numbers of people who visit and use the Park and the Center. However, the demand for classes, environmental education, and safe accessible recreation spaces has outpaced the Center’s ability to meet these vital community needs.

Exciting Days are Ahead for Railroad Bridge Park and the Dungeness River Audubon Center if we can raise funds to improve and increase our potential to serve Olympic Peninsula residents and visitors. Funding to sustain the Center and Park comes from individuals and organizations that support our mission and the legacy we are building. Won’t you contribute to preserving these vibrant community resources? 
  • Cash Gifts are the most direct and effective way to support ongoing operations and maintenance of the Center and Park.
  • Sustained Giving – Even an affordable amount, such as $10/month, can help.  Contact the Center at 360-681-4076.

Planned Giving

Charitable gifts benefit both the donor and the River Center.  There are tax benefits from monetary and other giving options such as your will or trust, insurance beneficiary, IRA distributions, stocks and bonds, property, homes, vehicles, and memorial and honorary gifts. Contact the Executive Director at 360-681-4076 or email rivercenter@olympus.net.

Dungeness River Audubon Center Legacy Circle

In 2013, the Dungeness River Audubon Center established a Legacy Circle.  Membership in the Circle is open to those members and donors who have included or intend to include the Center in their financial or estate plans.  Such gifts sustain ongoing operations of the Center and Railroad Bridge Park and ensure that generations of children and adults will have an opportunity to learn the importance of protecting and enjoying the Olympic Peninsula’s unique natural and cultural resources.

Large or small, a legacy pledge helps toward guaranteeing that these treasures in our community are sustainable and will continue beyond your lifetime.

Periodic gatherings will be held to honor these visionary donors for their commitment to the long-term success of the Center and Park.  Discussions are rich in history and inspiration for the future.

If you would like more information about the Legacy Circle or would like to attend a future gathering, please contact Julie Jackson at 360/683-1355 or juliejackson@wavecable.com.

River Center Legacy Fund
