HANSVILLE GREENWAY UPDATE
As we look back at a cool and wet December, it’s also time to review our accomplishments during 2018 and plan for 2019. Here are some of what was accomplished during this past year.
Mowed large portions of Bear Meadow and Otter Meadow to control blackberry bushes and alder starts.
Continued removal of invasive species and the control of Canadian Thistle.
Provided bus funding and hosted about 300 North Kitsap grade school students on educational field trips within the Greenway.
Installed 33 Rescue Locator signs throughout the trail system and installed a memorial plaque honoring Martin Adams on the Hawks Hole Creek bridge.
Removed downed trees and large branches from the trails after the Fall windstorms.
Continued overall trail maintenance.
As we look forward to 2019 our goals are to continue to explore opportunities for any additions to the Greenway. Continue with improvements to make them all-weather trails and continue the education program for elementary school students.
The Greenway and Norwegian Point Park always need more volunteers to help us make them safer and more enjoyable for all of us, so we invite you to come and join the other volunteers.
