Are you looking for an opportunity to get you out in the parks and get your hands dirty! We are looking for volunteers to help rebuild a section of trail in the Port Gamble Heritage Forest Park. The project is scheduled from 9am-1pm October 26th, and we will be meeting at the Bay View Trailhead parking lot.

Trained park stewards will guide volunteers in rebuilding sections of a trail that were disturbed due to logging activity. Please be prepared to hike to the project site and work on an uneven surface by wearing the appropriate shoes. Tools will be provided. We look forward to seeing you the 26th.

Come enjoy the spectacular sights and sounds of Harper Park’s gorgeous 59-acres; salt marshes, an estuary, forested trails and amazing views of Puget Sound. Harper park is an important part of our Puget Sound ecosystem with dynamic habitat for many species in the area.

A new stewardship group is forming for Harper Park and we would greatly appreciate some volunteer assistance October 27th from 10am-12pm.

We will be continuing the removal of non-native vegetative invasive species along with widening sections of the trails to make them more accessible for park users.
