North Kitsap Trails Association is once again participating in the Kitsap Great Give on May 2, 2017. We appreciate your support in prior years and are going for a record fund raising of $10,000 this year. Funds will go toward acquisition of land for preservation and trail building in the Port Gamble area. Much of this land covers a natural aquifer and its preservation will help to ensure not only open space for public recreation, but also clean usable water for the community. A portion of Great Give funds are matched by sponsors so this is a good time to maximize your contribution! You can set an email reminder for yourself that will be delivered on donation day. Thank you and Happy Trails!
Amy Sutton joined the NKTA board in February 2017. Amy has lived in Poulsbo for 19 years, working as a middle school language arts teacher. She has passed countless hours and countless miles on the trails, hiking with the dogs in her life, most currently with Finn, the yellow lab. She also rides the trails on her horse Bailey. Amy appreciates having public land that can be accessed and enjoyed by such a variety of users. She says, “I know how firsthand the value of being able to access this wilderness and all it has to offer. To me the land has been a gift and preserving it will make it a gift we can give to future generations of outdoor enthusiasts.” Amy is excited to do her part to help conserve the public land in North Kitsap.
We must act now to save a regional treasure and a forest for future generations. The Kitsap Forest and Bay Community Campaign is the final phase of a multi-year effort to secure the purchase of the Port Gamble Forest. We must raise $3.5 million to ensure the Port Gamble Forest will not be sold and developed. Learn more, and donate now at SavePG.org
