We are Halfway There!

Port Gamble Forest aquistionsThis winter the Kitsap Forest and Bay Campaign moved one step closer to protecting open space in Kitsap County forever. Almost half the acreage in the Port Gamble forest - 1,335 acres to be exact - were purchased this winter and designated permanent, protected parkland! A big thank you to all who helped make this happen!

However, our job is not done yet; acreage along the western ridge line remains subject to development. The Kitsap Forest and Bay Coalition has raised most of the $3.5 million needed to save it but has to raise the rest by the end of June - this year. A generous Bainbridge Island couple will match up to a $100,000 for all donations through June 15th! Please help preserve this amazing resource - make donations online at or by donating through NKTA on May 2nd at the Kitsap Great Give (see details below).
