A New addition

Posted by Ken Campbell February 22, 2010 0 Comment 889 views

According to the morning fish wrap, the National Park Service is looking to expand Olympic National Park by purchasing 240 acres in the Lake Ozette area. The proposed buy includes parts of Umbrella Creek that are critical habitat for native sockeye, along with additional acres of pristine forest. Current owners of the parcel, the Cascade Land Conservancy, are asking $663,000 for the whole shebang, which is what it paid in 2008 when it bought the land from a wood products company with the intent that it would one day become part of the park. Public comments are being accepted until March 22nd – the park hopes to ink the deal early in 2011.
