The Port of Vancouver has scheduled its public tours for 2024. Each free tour features a briefing about the Columbia Snake River System, how cargo moves on the river, and an overview of the port’s commercial and industrial operations, budget, governance and a look at current projects.

The tours start at the port’s administrative office and then participants board a bus to look at the port’s marine terminals, rail infrastructure and industrial facilities.

The tours are scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 22; 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 4; 10 a.m. to noon June 22; 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. July 10; 10 a.m. to noon July 27; 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Aug. 8; 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 24; 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 4; and 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 21.

Attendees must bring a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport because they will travel through secured areas of the port overseen by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard.

To reserve a spot, participants must register online at www.portvanusa.com/community/know-your-port/. Groups with up to six participants are allowed to register. Reservations are required. For more information, contact Julie Rawls, community relations manager at the port, at 360-823-5297.
