The 2014 Series will delve into the diverse theme of how local waterways have been used through time, and will consist of four entertaining and informative evenings focusing on topics that center around the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. “Since man has lived in this area, the waterways have been a source for living, trading, and pleasure,” said Russell Roseberry, Board President of the Friends of the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge. “We intend to follow emerging usage of our waterways, from the Columbia River to the Refuge, through to present day.” See our Series Page for the full year’s schedule and details about this first event:
