This calendar is the place to find fun events happening throughout Grays Harbor County including Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Westport, Ocean Shores, Elma, Montesano and beyond.
The public is invited to “Changing Shorelines” – a science forum – on Tuesday November 17th to learn about coastal hazards in Grays Harbor and Pacific counties. Top scientists will present recent studies about coastal erosion, flooding, and sea-level rise, and will bring in specific discussion of what this means for coastal Washington. This free and educational event will allow participants to interact with scientists and the science, and leave with a better understanding about coastlines. Light dinner will be provided. Event is free. Location is the Schermer Building, room 4134 at Grays Harbor Community College, 6-8 pm.
For more information, please contact Casey Dennehy at 360-556-6509 or email@example.com. Walk-ins welcome. Registration is encouraged, but not required!
Listen to selections from oral histories gathered by Harbor area students come to life through readings and narrator panels. Through these voices we will explore what draws us to this place, what helps us persevere during times of struggle, and what cultivates our sense of belonging to the area known as “The Harbor.”
Voices from the Harbor is an event series produced with funding from Humanities Washington. This is the first in a series of three events.
The public is invited to join local historians and students from the Evergreen State College as they share selections from oral histories collected by and from Harbor residents. Participants will learn about the craft of composing oral histories as they listen to stories about the Harbor Region from the perspective of local residents.
Giving Voice to Experience is the first of three events planned for the Voices of the Harbor project – produced through a collaboration between the Evergreen State College and Window Seat Media; with support from Humanities Washington.
To reach long term goals, we recognize the need to have a solid strategic plan.

Come to the next board meeting.
Today is the kick off of availability of Passport to Grays Harbor History. Visit a museum today (Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Lake Quinault, McCleary, Montesano, Moclips, Ocean Shores, or Westport) and get started collecting your unique passport stamps. Great summer fun!
Quinault Tribal Museum has had to postpone their celebration to June 16 & 17, but it will be worth the wait with a storyteller, artisans, vender, tours & refreshments.
All October long, pick up a colorful world map at the Information Desk to trace your family’s passage from your ancestral homeland to Grays Harbor, with landing points along the way. We will supply markers and other crafting supplies for you to use. Maps will be available starting Oct. 3. Supplies are limited. Submissions may be posted to library social media.

Explore the story of your immigration or an ancestor’s in this writing workshop under the guidance of author and poet Joanne Clarkson. Clarkson most recently published a volume of poetry, “The Fates,” which touched on her grandmothers’ immigration experiences.
Coastal Interpretive Center’s Rayonier: 90 Years of Land Management is a presentation about the 90-year history of Rayonier’s land management and modern forestry practices, presented by Mark Smalley, Engineering Manager, and Dan Stransky, the Senior Timber Marketing Manager for Rayonier’s lands in Oregon and Washington.
Throughout the Northwest, people have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch— a hairy, eight to ten-foot-tall hominid —for hundreds of years. Yet no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this being’s existence.
Author David George Gordon evaluates the data gathered about the legendary Northwest icon, discusses the rules of critical thinking and the workings of the scientific method, and explains how one can become an effective “citizen scientist” by gathering credible evidence that can be used to substantiate the Sasquatch’s status as either Man-Ape or Myth.
He is the author of “The Sasquatch Seeker’s Field Manual: Using Citizen Science to Uncover North America’s Most Elusive Creature“. Read more about the author here.
