From the Greenway Trails Group

February in the Greenway, as compiled from trail reports submitted by our volunteers:

“Quiet Place was nice and cleared off today.” “Walked to Lower Hawk’s Pond and took a few minutes to check the huge beaver hut, growing higher, it seems.”  “Saw ring-necked ducks, mallards, hooded merganser, marsh wrens, Pacific wrens, red-tailed hawk, ravens.” 

February projects in the Greenway, as compiled from projects reports:

“Many thanks to all the volunteers that appeared today and cleared downed trees, cleaned muck out of several small culverts, cleared two drainages, cleared downed limbs and holly. We ganged up on the large culvert as you enter Otter Meadow, pulled a chimney brush through it, and removed a huge plug of mud.” “The three trees leaning across the trail between posts 14 and 15 were removed by a crew, and a culvert was replaced under the Alder Wetlands trail.”

Happy and thankful news received recently:

The Greenway was awarded $1,000 from the Suquamish Tribal Foundation to cover busing costs to allow for the continuation of the annual Hansville Greenway/North Kitsap School District Elementary School Outdoor Environmental Education Program that has been held for many years. We greatly appreciate this contribution.

The next Greenway meeting is scheduled for April 2, 2020 at 6 p.m. at GHCC.
