Mission Statement

Nisqually Reach Nature Center (NRNC) is a volunteerrun,
membership-supported, nonprofit organization
that promotes the understanding, appreciation, and
preservation of the Nisqually estuarine ecosystem
and its integral role in the local environment, history,
and culture through interpretation, education, and
research. We are dedicated to our mission and are in our 28th year of opperation.

Description

The Nisqually Estuary is home to the full
range of marine-dependent creatures, from
single-celled plankton to the largest of
Puget Sound's resident marine mammals.
Migrating shorebirds, waterfowl, and
salmon rest and feed here. Bald eagles
and heron nest nearby. River otter, raccoon,
deer, coyote, harbor seal, sea lion
and even the occasional whale ply the marine
and terrestrial pathways of the estuary.
In the mud of the delta, the tiny organisms
that provide the base for the food
chain abound.
The Nisqually Estuary is the largest undeveloped
river delta in South Sound and is a
true biologic gem worthy of all its splendor.
It has held its integrity through the combined
efforts of concerned people who
helped protect this valuable habitat.
