December 22, 2017 – On Friday afternoon, a transaction was completed to secure more than 1,500 acres of the Port Gamble Forest from Pope Resources to add to the Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park.
This final phase of the project was fueled by donations from over 1,200 community members, as well as many local partners, foundations and champions, who came together to raise $3.5 million. Inspired by the community effort, matching grants were provided by Kitsap County ($200,000) and Washington State ($500,000) for a total of $4.0 million in this final phase of the project.
The Port Gamble Forest property includes 65 miles of trails where already more than 20,000 hikers, birders, mountain bikers, equestrians, cyclists and runners recreate each year. At the north end of the property is a future recreational area for mountain biking. The property will be added to the Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park, which now totals 3,493 acres.
