Creosote Removal to Start in Kitsap County  
The Washington State Department of Natural Resources will launch a major clean-up next week of creosote-saturated pilings and debris along the Puget Sound shores of Kitsap County. About 245 piles and 18 tons of debris will be removed from eight sites located along the eastern Kitsap Peninsula shoreline.
This clean-up is part of a larger DNR effort throughout Puget Sound to remove creosote-treated debris from the state’s marine and estuarine waters. For more information click here for the flyer.

FOREST THINNING
NEWBERRY HILL HERITAGE PARK THINNING HAS BEGUN (August 7th)

The stand in front of you is an example of poor wildlife habitat. It is an even-aged plantation of Douglas Fir.

About 1 square mile of the forest stands in this park are even-aged, single species stands which need thinning.
In order to restore forest habitat complexity, variable density thinning (VDT) will be applied to these stands. VDT will remove smaller less vigorous trees and allow more sunlight to reach the forest floor. This will improve shrub growth and increase forage and habitat for wider variety of wildlife. Native plants that produce food for wildlife will be planted is some of the gaps created by thinning. Our goal - Improve habitat complexity, wildlife and native plant diversity. The first area schedule for VDT is located immediately south of Klahowya Secondary School - Newberry Hill Heritage Park. Click here for the Newberry Hill Heritage Park map. Other areas will be thinned in the following years.

If you have concerns or question please visit www.friendsofnhhp.com or click here for the Kitsap County Parks Forest Stewardship page. The Kitsap County Forester is Arno Bergstrom, email ABergstr@co.kitsap.wa.us.  If you would like to know more about the forest practices act visit
