This calendar is the place to find fun events happening throughout Grays Harbor County including Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Westport, Ocean Shores, Elma, Montesano and beyond.
Northwest Spay and Neuter Center, Washington’s largest non-profit high-quality spay and neuter clinic, now offers free transportation for your pet to and from our state-of-the-art clinic in Tacoma! No residency restrictions, and financial assistance may be available.
How does it work? Our dedicated employees collect scheduled patients (cats and dogs) at a prearranged location. Patients are driven to our clinic in a safe, climate-controlled vehicle for surgery. They recover overnight and are returned to the same location the following morning. We accept pet cats and dogs and feral cats in traps on our shuttle!
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!
