Photo. A box of entries that went to the Kitsap County Fair on Monday.
Timbers Edge Phase 1 Purchase Completes. It took awhile for everything to come together, but the purchase of 25.5 acres finally closed on September 29, 2015. Because state and some county funds were involved, an appraisal was needed to verify property values. Below is what we saw on Facebook today.
Police Reports. In our last Update we reported on police chase in Illahee, a crashed car, and a drug dealer who fled on foot, and eventually was found and apprehended with the help of a police dog. The first report if from the Kitsap Sun and the second from the CK Reporter.
Double Rainbow. Thanks to those who share their photos and for this one of a double rainbow taken from Illahee and looking toward Bainbridge Island.
The port commissioners adopted a resolution proposing that the Port of Illahee cease using three commissioner districts. Currently commissioner candidates must come from the commissioner district in which they reside. If the proposition is approved candidates will only need to reside within the Port of Illahee boundary. This is authorized by the Revised Code of Washington, Chapter 53.12.021, and requires a simple majority vote for approval.
Early Spring. So many photo opportunities with our early spring. Here are two with the last being of rhubarb starting to emerge.
Preserve Work Party. Last Friday (10/10/14) there was a major work party at the Illahee Preserve with the Washington Youth Academy (48 cadets and 4 support staff) and a small group from the aircraft carrier John C Stennis (CVN 74) that took care of all the wood chips at the Almira and Thompson Lane parking lots.
Humming Birds. With about 6-8 humming birds flying around, these two seemed to be patiently waiting for the sweetened liquid to thaw out this morning.
Preserve Work Party. An Illahee Preserve work party is scheduled for early Sunday (12/8/13) morning as they want to get some wood chips down on a new trail section before the rains begin. Volunteers who can push a wheelbarrow are needed, and new wheelbarrows have been purchased and will be available on Sunday. See the notice below regarding the details:
Preparedness Recommendation. One of the recommendations at the Disaster Preparedness presentation on Monday (11/18/13) was an indoor heater called a “Big Buddy”. We noticed they had them at the Sportsman’s Warehouse so we took a couple of pictures of the front and back of the box in case anyone was interested.
Preserve Work Party. We had a very productive work party on Saturday (10/19/13) at the Illahee Preserve. Rain garden plot #1 was full of weeds and native roses that went wild and a group of volunteers from the Family of God Lutheran Church came to help rectify the problem. Wheel barrow loads of weeds were pulled and two areas were planted with native coastal or beach strawberries (fragaria chiloensis). We selected some photos of the event that show the group and the before and after status.
