The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission this week approved the purchase of nearly 132 acres of land in Grays Harbor County, which includes a 35-acre island and surrounding tidelands that will be added to the Johns River Wildlife Area. The Commission said on Monday that the property will provide some hunting grounds, and habitat for a variety of fish and wildlife, especially waterfowl and shorebirds migrating along the Pacific Flyway.
The Department secured an option to purchase the property which is about 1 mile Southeast of Westport for $108,000.
The public is invited to participate in a work party hosted by the Friends of Olympic National Park (Friends) on Saturday, October 4, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center located at 3002 Mount Angeles Road in Port Angeles.
This event will focus on cleaning the area around the visitor center. Projects will include pruning, exotic plant removal, weeding, raking, and local trail maintenance.
Participants are asked to meet in the visitor center parking lot at 9:00 a.m. Some tools will be available, but participants are urged to bring their favorite hand tools and gloves.
This is the third in a series of bi-annual work sessions the Friends plan to host at the park.
“These events are designed to address park maintenance needs and provide an opportunity to bring together the Friends membership, park volunteers, and the public,” said Friends of Olympic National Park President David Morris. “We hope that as many people as possible can participate in this effort.”
Members of Friends of Olympic National Park, national park volunteers, and the general public are invited to attend both events. For additional information, please contact the Olympic National Park volunteer office at 360-565-3142.
