A huge thanks to the 50 or so volunteers who came out to the Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park waterfront on a very foggy October morning. Many thanks to REI for sponsoring the event and Kitsap County Parks, North Kitsap Trails Association, and Great Peninsula Conservancy staff for coordinating and bringing their tools and expertise. We couldn’t do it without our amazing members who come out to WORK. They know that to make their parks awesome, it takes a community!
We had four projects on the docket and completed all of them by noon!
- Making an ADA accessible route to the first Port Gamble Bay lookout by spreading and tamping down gravel at an appropriate width.
- Clearing the shoreline loop trail of brush, leaves, ferns, and invasive plants.
- Planting Nootka Rose and Snowberry native plants along the waterfront at the second lookout.
- Creating gravel-filled pads around the new bench and picnic table to maintain them through the rainy months.
