Big on Visitor Service The publication you are reading reflects the work we have been doing to unite the Kelso Longview Chamber of Commerce with the Visitor Center – one stop shopping for visitors’ informational needs. Our new building has been in place for nearly 18 months and we continue to make adjustments, the latest adding some esthetics and landscaping. Last year nearly 11,000 people visited the center, and another 13,000 called or e-mailed us to gather information about our area. We now have Visitor Center signs on both north and southbound I-5 freeway exits, a large sign, courtesy Cowlitz PUD, on a pole next to our parking area, and a large banner on Kelso Drive – all to help visitors find us. With those additions and the 35th anniversary of Mount St. Helens this year, we anticipate more than 15,000 visitors this summer. If you are reading this from a hotel or the home of friends or family members, we invite you to stop by and see our Visitor Center and pick up a coupon to one of our local restaurants or theaters. We also have guides to hiking trails, bike routes and fishing holes, and maps for Mount St. Helens, the downtown art galleries, downtown shopping, and the Lake Sacajawea arboretum, where you can find 100 species of flora. You may want to just drop by to have your photo taken with BIGFOOT, a lot of people do! That’s right, we have an 8-foot sasquatch in our Visitor Center and he loves to have his photo taken with guests. We also have an assortment of gifts to show those back home you were here. Nothing says Longview like a Squirrel Fest hat, a Shay Locomotive T-shirt, container of Mount St. Helens ash, scented local soap or a cool Bigfoot item. So stop in and say, “Hi.” Bill Marcum | Chamber CEO

Chamber Ambassadors – The Red Coats Chamber Ambassadors, or as we refer to them “The Red Coats,” are an integral part of the Chamber of Commerce. Ambassadors are the mainstay of Chamber volunteers. They juggle busy professional careers while making time to assist the Chamber at a variety of events year long. Easily identified by their red blazers, you will find them meeting and greeting at our numerous events, welcoming new members at ribbon cuttings, assisting with community programs and having a great time. To become an Ambassador, you must be an active Chamber member, and be able to make what often amounts to a significant time commitment. The Chamber also offers these committees: Economic Development • Government Affairs • Lower Columbia Professionals • Chamber Education Foundation (for information on these last two groups, please see the following page)

Whether it’s the quirky, squirrel-centered; the deep, traditional heritage of the Scottish; the red, white and true celebration of independence, or the roar from a well-polished chopper, Longview and Kelso offer family, fun for everyone. Share the Nuttiness

In 2011, The Sandbaggers wanted to create a fun event nutty enough for everyone from age 2 to 1,002. That is exactly what Squirrel Fest embodies as the annual festival, this year scheduled for Aug. 15, has become Longview’s marquee, good-time, family event. The city has embraced its squirrel-friendly reputation. There are five squirrel bridges around the city, one with its own live squirrel cam. www.lvsquirrelfest.com

Big Bang

Longview’s GoFourth Festival touts itself as the largest, family-oriented festival in greater Cowlitz County, drawing more than 30,000 people to the shores of Lake Sacajawea for the Fourth of July celebration. Started in the 1960s, the celebration continues to grow, but always includes concerts, sporting events, the Cardboard Boat Regatta, parade and spectacular fireworks display. www.gofourthfestival.org

Raise a Glass

Grapes, Grains and Grooves says it all. The Longview Early Edition Rotary fundraiser provides guests 21 years old and older to sample local wines and craft beers while enjoying live music. Some say the event is reminiscent of the late 1990s Rainfest. Last year’s inaugural event filled the Cowlitz County Regional Conference Center and organizers are hoping to do the same again Sept. 11 and 12 this year. www.kelsolongviewchamber.org

❝Squirrel Fest truly shows our community’s character and our NUTTY sense of humor!❞ Bob Gregory Former Longview City Manager from the Squirrel Fest website Page 8 | 2015 Kelso Longview Chamber Visitor Guide & Directory

Tartan Tradition

Each year, the City of Kelso honors its Scottish roots with clans, kilts and bagpipes at the Highlander Festival. Tam O’Shanter Park serves as the backdrop for the festivities, which include Highland Dance Competition, Highland Games and Piping Competition and a Parade of Clans. The weekend, this year Sept. 12-13, also includes the Avenue of Clans, Scottish craft and food vendors, Scottish music and competitions, Scottish Scone Competition, the Kilted Klassic Golf Tournament and the Kirkin O’ The Tartan Sunday morning. www.kelso.gov

Rev Up

Kelso has its own version of Stergis – the annual Iron Horse Rally and Ride Aug. 29. Bikes of all makes and models line South Pacific Street from noon well into the evening Saturday and then ride Sunday. The Kelso Downtown Revitalization Association says there’s a new route this year and the two days are pet and family friendly. www.facebook.com/highlanderironhorse

Color My World

New for this year, The Color Dash races near Three Rivers Mall Aug. 1. A family-friendly, untimed 5K where participants start white, T-shirt provided, and at each kilometer add blue, sprinkle green, splash yellow, spray orange, and finish strong in pink. Organizers promote it as the “world’s brightest 5K.” It promises to be a colorful fundraiser for the Kelso Longview Chamber of Commerce. www.kelsolongviewchamber.org

BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO LIVE In 2012, Longview was rated by Forbes as one of America’s 10 prettiest towns

2015 Kelso Longview Chamber Visitor Guide & Directory | Page 9

Longview Longview is often called the Gateway to the Pacific. A small city of 36,000 it traces its roots back to founder R.A. Long, president of the Long-Bell Timber Company, who built a mill along the Columbia River and the city of Longview to accommodate its workers. Rather than allow housing to spring up randomly, Long decided to build a city for the estimated 14,000 workers he would bring to the area to operate the mill. Longview was dedicated in July 1923. Designed as a hub for business and travel routes, the town’s Civic Center features R.A. Long Park, Longview Public Library, the Monticello Hotel, and the post office and city hall. Long’s influence and dedication to create a city to meet the needs of his employees remain evident today, and a bronze statue of him wearing his traditional straw hat, as well as the name of a park and local high school, are reminders of that vision. Today, Longview is the largest city in Cowlitz County with a strong economic base and a variety of recreational, educational and cultural offerings. Ideally situated on Interstate 5, Longview sits between Seattle and Portland, rests between the banks of the Columbia and Cowlitz rivers and is 90-minutes from the Pacific Ocean or the Cascade Mountains. And, even with its diminished size, Mount St. Helens still looms large in the area and can be easily seen from the city on a clear day.

Wander Through History

Stroll through Longview’s history by heading downtown to R.A. Long Park and Civic Circle. Eventually named for the city founder, R.A. Long Park is a National Register Historic District. The park was designed to be the center of the city. Its roads extend out from the circle with governmental and cultural anchors like the Monticello Hotel, Longview Public Library, and the United States Post Office. Each building showcasing its original architecture and character from the 1920s. Surprise! Surprise! Inside Civic Circle is a piece of Plymouth Rock, a sundial and a number of memorials. Don’t forget to check out the Chief Lelooska FOUNTAIN ADDITION totem pole that welcomes visitors as well. The Koelsch family has donated a A few blocks in any direction and there’s fountain to the city of Longview for R.A. more to see like the Monticello Long Park.

Also on Kessler at Washington Way sits the grand Community Church, on the city’s historic register. Built in 1926, it resembles a Gothic revival castle right down to the gargoyles that keep watch from their perches, and the beautiful stained glass.

Back on Track

In 1997, John Chilson and Jeff Wilson began restoring the Shay Locomotive outside the Longview Public Library. It took the two volunteers and a host of others from ILWU Local No. 21 more than 2,000 hours to steam the 40-ton engine back to life. The Shay Locomotive hauled timber from 1924 to 1956, when logging trucks became the preferred method of movement. The Long-Bell Lumber Co., which founded Longview in the 1920s, donated the locomotive to the city in 1956. Over time it became rusted and vandalized, but thanks to the volunteer effort and funding from businesses, grants and personal donations it has been restored and a pavilion to protect the precious piece of history is on its way.

Nutty Narrows

Built in 1963 by the late Amos Peters, the Nutty Narrows Bridge is a local landmark and listed on the city’s historic register. Peters constructed the structure, which stretches across Olympia Way near Civic Center Circle, to give squirrels a safe way to cross the busy thoroughfare. The original 60-foot bridge was built from aluminum and fire hose. In 1983, the bridge was spruced up and rededicated. It is now one of five in the city and the focal point for the Squirrel Fest celebration. After Peters’ death, a 10-foot wooden squirrel sculpture was placed near the bridge.

Photo by Protik M. Hossain courtesty of Cowlitz County Tourism

Two years after the 1980 eruption, Mount St. Helens was left to recover naturally and the National Volcanic Monument was created. Decades later the gray, barren landscape flourishes and visitors can hike, study and enjoy the scenery. Mountain Joy

Breathtaking viewpoints and miles of trails have been created to explore Mount St. Helens by car and foot. During the summer Forest Service interpreters lead a wide range of activities like short walks and amphitheater presentations. Adventurers can climb – 4,500 feet of elevation in five miles – or explore from the air with a helicopter tour. In the winter, cross-country skiing and snowmobile trails are available. In many cases only enthusiasm is necessary, in others a permit is required. www.visitmtsthelens.com

Grab a Show

The historic Columbia Theatre opened as a vaudeville venue and movie house in 1925. After years of decline, the theater escaped what would have been a tragic ending in 1980 when excavation and demolition equipment heading toward the theater was diverted to help with the cleanup following the Mount St. Helens eruption. In the interim, a group of visionaries saved and restored the historic building. Today, the vibrant 1,000-seat theater hosts musicals, concerts, comedy and children’s theatre. The theater earned a Historical Preservation Officers Award from Washington state for outstanding achievement in historic preservation. Its counterpart is the Kelso Theater Pub/Backstage Cafe. The historic theater in downtown Kelso hosts a variety of movies, music, art and public events. www.columbiatheatre.com • www.ktpub.com

Land and Sea

If you’re a fisherman, coming to southwest Washington is heaven. Streams, rivers and lakes teeming, fish are biting and anglers are reeling. It’s also a biker’s paradise with scenic rides and varied terrain. Head For the Hills

For something close, Longview’s Cloney Park also includes a BMX trail. If you’re looking to crank it up a notch, then head to the hills, south side of Mount St. Helens to be specific, for some of the Northwest’s premier mountain biking treks. Our sources point to Siouxon Creek, Lewis River, South Coldwater and Falls Creek. The Ape Canyon ride, which begins on the south side of Mount St. Helens, we understand is one of the Northwest’s premier mountain biking outings. The Three Rivers Cycling Club has assembled a list of 24 area rides of varying degrees of challenge. www.threeriverscycling.com www.fs.usda.gov

Mountain Challenge

Looking for a challenge, Tour de Blast, the 82-mile route from Toutle to Johnston Ridge Observatory at Mount St. Helens takes riders into the heart of the blast zone with a total elevation gain of 6,240 feet. The course is divided into three levels: beginner, a 33-mile trip; intermediate, 54mile trip; and advanced the 82-mile trek. The ride is hosted by the Longview Rotary Club. This year’s date is Sept. 12. www.tourdeblast.com

The Other Two-Wheeler

For those who like their two-wheels to have some horsepower don’t worry, the area offers a number of options. Racing is available at the Castle Rock Fairgrounds track, Option MX and Riverdale Raceway in Toutle, and Woodland M/X Park.

Catch of the Day

Word is fishing for fall chinook on the Columbia River should be good this summer and fall. The Columbia River fall chinook could be the third largest return on record since 1938. The Cowlitz, Lewis, Toutle and Kalama rivers are among the most revered steelhead streams in the Northwest. The Columbia offers reliable salmon and sturgeon runs. Try your luck with kokanee at Yale Reservoir, tiger muskies and Coho at Merwin Reservoir, and rainbow trout at Swift Reservoir. Silver Lake delivers excellent fishing for large mouth bass and is also a great spot to go after perch, bluegill and crappie. Lake Sacajawea, located in the middle of the city of Longview, has trout. Silver Lake has bass. Crappie, bluegill, catfish and perch. Rainbow trout are planted in the spring. If the fishing is good, you might also snap yellow perch, bluegill sunfish, brown bullhead, and both black crappie and white crappie. Check the Fishing in Washington regulations pamphlet for limits and size requirements. Don't forget a fishing license. www.wdfw.wa.gov

Get Outdoors

Hike to the mountain tops and watch the sunrise. Pop your tent under a canopy of stars. Feel the wind whip across you face as you whiz through the tree tops of our forests. Monkey Around

The kids will go ape over these lava tubes. Formed about 2,000 years ago from a volcanic eruption, Ape Cave is the longest known lave tube in the continental United States, 12,810 feet. The operative word here is cave, please wear sturdy shoes, bring a jacket and carry a flashlight. Opt for either the easier route or head uphill for the longer adventure, a mile-plus climb over large boulders. Information, lantern rentals and guided tours are available at the Apes headquarters from early July through Labor Day. Find the latest sasquatch sighting on the Big Foot Research Organization website. Interested in how many there have been and where. www.visitmtsthelens.com


There’s always hiking, biking and fishing for outdoor adventure, but have you tried geocaching? It’s a treasure hunt using GPS-enabled devices. Speaking of hidden treasure, why not spend the day prospecting. Take a chance at striking it rich by panning for gold in a local river and creek. Many in the area have varying amounts of gold, platinum, and other minerals. Bob’s Sporting Goods or Fire Mountain Prospectors can provide information to get started. Whiz through the forest on a zip line with Treehouse Island Zip Line Adventures. Zip lines are a pulley suspended on a cable that speed you from the top of a hill to the bottom. Climb Mount St. Helens. Late spring through early fall is the most popular season.

Road Trip

There are dozens of places in the area to pitch a tent or pull in an RV in Cowlitz, Pacific, Wahkiakum, Lewis, Clark and Skamania county. But three with close proximity to Longview and Kelso come to mind. County Line Park on Ocean Beach Highway, just west of Longview, Brookhollow RV Park and Cedars RV Park. Seaquest State Park is a 475-acre, year-round camping park near Mount St. Helens. The beautifully forested park, with large secondary old growth trees, is situated off Spirit Lake Highway across from Silver Lake and the Mount St. Helens visitor center. Down the road in Woodland there’s, aptly named, Columbia Riverfront RV Park, and also the new Toutle River RV Resort. In addition to the Chamber of Commerce, a good source of information about area campgrounds can be found on the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory. www.goodsamcamping.com

Have Some Fun

Fair balls, fair weather, and well, the fair. You can find them all in Cowlitz County during the summer. It’s fair to say, you can rub noses with baseball team mascot Corby and a 4H bunny, probably in the same day! Play Ball!

Peanuts, Cracker Jack, the crack of a bat and the roar of a crowd are part of the atmosphere on a summer night watching the Cowlitz Black Bears take to the diamond at Story Field on the Lower Columbia College campus. This Pacific Coast League team features some of the country’s top collegiate players and serves as the foundation for a future Major League career. The Bears open the season with a four-game homestand June 4 and keep swinging through August. General admission begins at $8. www.cowlitzblackbears.com

Homegrown Goodness

Saddle Up

“You Make It, Grow It, Show It,” that’s the tagline for this year’s Cowlitz County Fair set for July 22-25. There will be grandstand entertainment, free entertainment, a professional rodeo, carnival, youth market sale, food, vendors, FFA and 4H exhibits and much, much more. Admission is free all day, every day. Bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, team roping, tie down roping, steer wrestling, break away roping, barrel racing, and bull riding –whew! that’s a whole lot of excitement and entertainment in one arena, but that’s what you’ll find at the Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo July 23-25. www.cowlitzcountyfair.com

Each Tuesday and Saturday, the Cowlitz County Conference Center comes alive with the scent of fresh flowers, the color of just-picked berries and vegetables, the sound of local musicians and the sight of crafts and garden decor from artisans. The Farmers Market is open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October. www.cowlitzfarmersmarkets.com

Color Dash and Jingle Run

The Chamber of Commerce hosts two fundraising and fun 5K run/walks. The first is The Color Dash, Aug. 1. The second, Jingle All The Way, is in Dec. 12. Hundreds of folks turn out, decked out for the cause. www.kelsolongviewchamber.org
