Next stewards meeting is June 21st, 6:30PM NOTE room change to 116. Regular work party 23rd of June.
Several students from Olympic College joined forces with the stewards at our regular work party to collect erratics. These granite rocks surfed a glacier from Canada to Kitsap County about 15,000 years ago. We are collecting and staging them near the proposed bridge site to armor the bridge toe, and roughen the fish channel.
Friends received over $700.00 in donations for the fish passage project during the Day of Giving. These funds will be applied to our goal of $80,000 for improved fish passage on Old Loop Parkway. Thank you to all our donors.
Rummage Sale Wrap Up
Thanks to KC Parks and all who donated items or helped with the sale. Stewards added a little over $1000.00 to their operating/maintenance funds.
Danger at Culvert!
Please watch your toddlers and dogs when on Old Loop Parkway where it crosses the outlet of the large wetland. There is a high velocity and volume of water through the culvert this time of year, that must be respected. We have installed a security fence to REMIND you to be careful. It is NOT designed to keep you or your dog out, you are responsible for that.
Tree Planting On 3 March
We will be planting Western Redcedar and Western White Pine in the extreme south end of the park. We could use your help. We will show you how and provide tools. We start around 9:30 AM.
Recent improvements to the park include: MAPRIKA update with rescue coordinates installed at all trail intersections, fire fuels reduced by chipping crew from USS Nimitz Advance Planning Team. Litehouse students and job coach helped install new trail sign at Coyote and Salal junction.
