The Feiro Marine Life Center (FMLC) is an aquarium located on the city pier in the center of the Crab Festival. Visitors are invited to stop in and learn about the local marine environment. At the Feiro visitors will marvel at the variety of marine life on display, there are hundreds of examples of inter-tidal creatures, fish, and plant life as well as "dry" displays to enjoy.
Staff and volunteer naturalists will be on hand to guide you and answer all of your questions. A touch tank provides a chance to meet marine life up close and personal.
In addition to the salt water exhibits, Feiro is home to 2 new interpretive displays that focus on the Elwha River Restoration project. Inside the Feiro visitors can see an interactive model of the Elwha River.
The Juan de Fuca Freethinkers will sponsor educational activities for kids in the Feiro Marine Life Center Saturday and Sunday 11-5. Activities will be a mixture of art and science leading children to understand the evolution and life cycles of crabs.
Outside the Feiro, on the south side of the stage building, is Port Angeles and the Elwha River: A Century of Change. Through photographs and text, the exhibit tells the story of the impact that the hydropower generated by the Elwha River had on the industrial development of the Port Angeles waterfront.
There are already 2 historical murals on the city pier. One depicts life along the harbor before European contact, and another illustrates the Puget Sound Colony in the late 19th Century. The new exhibit uses historical photographs to depict the tremendous changes that have taken place on the waterfront during the 20th century: from industrialization to restoration.
