Illahee Update 5/6/12 Selected “Walk in the Park” Photos

Successful Saturday “Walk in the Park” – Thanks to the Leadership Kitsap Dragons for a very successful “walk in the park” promotion and celebration of the Illahee Preserve!   Illahee photographer, John Lind, took over 200 photos of the event and we have selected a few of them to highlight the event.

This is what the “Welcome” sign looks like, and hopefully you can read it.

Just how big was that check?

A woodpecker visitor was in the vicinity at the end of the event.

This is a female piliated woodpecker because it lacks the red mustache of a male.

This was just a portion of the photos that we hope to learn how to post on the website on the photo page.
