Preserve Fires. Fires in the Illahee Preserve are the biggest concern, especially with such an extended dry season. The fire danger is high as signs around the Preserve indicate.
Saturday Fire. This fire was a small one in the middle of the Golf Course Loop trail.
Monday Fire. We don’t know who reported the Monday fire but the smoke was visible for miles and King 5 had a photos with the Olympic Mountains in the background. Thankfully it was off the Power Line which made it more accessible and special thanks to CKFD for their quick response! The Preserve and Illahee dodged a big one!
Encampment. Reports noted an encampment close by. We found signs of mail scattered along the trail that wasn’t there two weeks earlier when a Washington Youth Academy crew was clearing the power line trail. The encampment was in the Wildlife Preserve area that isn’t open to the public.
Photos. We just missed getting a photo of Canada geese with the deer shown under the apple tree.
Port Public Hearing. The Port of Illahee held a public hearing on Monday where they presented their Comprehensive Plan. Comments are encouraged over the next four weeks after which the Port will finalize the Plan.
Comp Plan Goals. The Comp Plan covers the Port’s plans for the next 6 years with the “Goals” section being a good summary. The entire plan can be viewed on the Port’s website: portofillahee.com.
