Polly Dyer Cascadia Broadband Leader Shelley Spalding is our host for this Broadwalk on the Olympic Peninsula. Broads will join the Olympic Forest Coalition, Wild Olympics Campaign, and others to learn about and support efforts to designate more than 126,000 acres of Wilderness and 464 miles of Wild & Scenic River on 19 different rivers on the Olympic Peninsula. Last year, Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Norm Dicks introduced legislation in Congress to provide permanent protections for the towering ancient forests, free-flowing rivers, critical fish and wildlife habitat and clean water, but no action was taken. We’ll also be looking at the Olympic National Parks Stewardship Plan.
This is a classic Broadwalk with camping at the gorgeous group campsite at Sequim Bay State Park, hikes into the wilderness proposal led by knowledgeable locals, a service project with the forest service, informational presentations on area resources and Washington wilderness proposals, and lots of Broad socializing. Our campsite is in the forest – a stone’s throw from the blue waters of the Straits of Juan de Fuca with the mountains of British Columbia in the distance. We have a covered pavilion and the luxury of available showers!
Cost includes camping, breakfasts and dinners each day, speakers, and more.
