Kitsap County's Heritage Park Stewardship program earned a Washington Recreation and Park Association award for Environmental Stewardship. In an email to Heritage Park Stewardship volunteers announcing the award, Lori Raymaker, Park Stewardship Coordinator, thanked volunteers:
"You are all a huge part of this award, because without you, this program and our parks as we know them, would not exist. As a park staff person, and a citizen of Kitsap County, I cannot thank you enough for all that you do!!"
NKTA would like to echo Lori's heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers who give their time, heart and enthusiasm to the parks and trails that our community enjoys.
