GPC Protects Tahuya River Property!
This July, GPC acquired a property along the Tahuya River, permanently protecting a mile of river flowing through 145 acres of floodplain and forest! This project was a high priority due to it’s high restoration potential and strategic location. Funding for this property came from the Washington Department of Ecology’s Streamflow program and State Salmon Recovery Funding Board. This is a spectacular acquisition and has tremendous conservation value for Hood Canal salmon, wildlife, and people!
We are still accepting applications for members of the Community Forest Advisory Team until Wednesday, July 26! Request an application today!
The 202-acre Newberry Woods Community Forest (NWCF) is protected for its conservation values, and will be used for preservation, restoration, education, public recreation, and engagement. The purpose of the community forest is to benefit the community directly - whether through protecting wildlife habitat and clean water, offering economic benefits, hosting educational fieldtrips and tours, or creating a space for community events... the list goes on.
The short- and long-term management of Newberry Woods Community Forest depends on community engagement and input – we want yours!
