Wahkiakum Outdoors' educational event: Catching the Last Ferry
March 9, 2023
How long has there been a ferry crossing from Puget Island? Come by the Hope Center, 320 S 3rd St. in Cathlamet, at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 25 to hear Speaker Jim Aalberg, past director of Oregon Historical Society, explain the history of the last ferry still operating on the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington. Going back nearly a century, 10 different ferries have plied the waters between Cathlamet and Puget Island, Washington, and Westport, Oregon. Designs and schedules have changed often over the years. Guaranteed to be a very interesting presentation.
