The community is invited to a presentation on the acquisition plan for the Arch Cape Forest, Saturday, March 16, from 11 a.m. to noon at the Arch Cape Fire Station located at 79729 US-101, Arch Cape.

Ben Dair, senior finance manager of Sustainable Northwest will give an update on the progress toward the proposed community forest acquisition. Dair will give an overview of the grant funding sources applied for to-date, as well as gap financing. The Arch Cape Domestic Water Supply District is seeking to purchase the watershed that supplies the drinking water for the community of Arch Cape. The watershed would then become a community forest, managed for clean, safe and affordable drinking water.

Mary Olson, Arch Cape Forest Outreach Coordinator, will give a short presentation on Scotch broom and the upcoming volunteer Scotch broom control event planned for Saturday, April 6.
