Description

For fifty years Tahoma Audubon activists have worked steadily with other individuals, groups, and agencies to restore and preserve our wild open spaces in Pierce County. Find out how from Kirk Kirkland, community activist and longtime member of Tahoma Audubon’s Conservation Committee. The countywide open space plan is well-funded and reaches into every river, farm area, and up the slopes of Mt. Rainier. Hear about the behind-the-scenes research, negotiation, planning, and oversight that has preserved working farms, working forests, and highly biodiverse wildlife habitat, and how you might play a role in this ongoing process.
