Cappy’s Trails Nature Walk

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOn February 15, 2017, JLT Land Stewards, Cheryl Wallace and Lee Merrill Join our Natural History Society and , for a winter walk through the heart of Quimper Wildlife Corridor in a special area known as Cappy’s Trails.

This was an easy walk on well maintained forested trails (approximately 3.5  miles) through mostly undeveloped land, open space, and wetlands, where the lives of people and wildlife overlap within the city of Port Townsend.

Meeting place was the Cook Avenue Cappy’s trailhead; we parked on Elmira Street, just off Cook Avenue, about 1/2 mile from Hastings. We suggested wearing light hiking boots, dressing in layers, and bringing water, snack, binoculars, and field guides.

There was no limit to the size of the group. Lee at jltnatural@saveland.org was the contact for carpool information and other details.
