You've seen them at the park and on Bond Rd - large thermometers tracking the progress being made toward the purchase of the Port Gamble land. We are so close! The Kitsap Forest and Bay Coalition has raised $2.2 million to save the forest. The deadline to raise the remaining $1.3 million is fast approaching but it is not too late to donate. A generous Bainbridge Island couple will match up to a $100,000 for all donations through June 15th! Please help preserve this amazing resource - make donations online at SavePG.org.
Speaking of Donations...
Thank you for your support of the North Kitsap Trails Association during the Great Give in May. We exceeded our expectations and raised nearly four times the money we did last year! This year, 79 generous donors donated around $20,000 - wow! Your generosity and support for saving the forest are very much appreciated. The North Kitsap Trails Association, in turn, committed $10,000 more in matching funds. That means together we were able to preserve another 12 acres of forestland. It is so exciting and rewarding to see a community come together to save such a treasure. Thank you!
