Restoration & Recreation

The Port's environmental programs include efforts to protect and restore habitat areas and native species. The Marine Terminal, Marina and Airport all operate in habitats in which significant land and aquatic species make their homes. We incorporate protective measures for these species into the design and construction of our major projects and seek opportunities to collaborate with our neighbors on efforts that ensure the continued prosperity of both the Port operations and the environments within which we operate.

The Port also recognizes the importance of public access to the shoreline. We have invested significant resources in building and maintaining open spaces for the community to ensure Olympia’s working waterfront affords the community ample opportunities to recreate.
