A Successful Campaign to Save the LBA Woods
With the Olympia City Council’s 2017 acquisition of the “Bentridge” parcel (the second half of the LBA Wood), the LBA Woods Park Coalition has successfully accomplished its mission: To initiate the acquisition and creation of a park for the Olympia and regional community on forested lands surrounding LBA Park. The “Trillium” portion was acquired in 2016. This parkland provides a wooded trail system, conserves an upland forest ecosystem and habitat, and provides citizens with access to nature. Our mission includes supporting the maintenance and development of the park The Friends of LBA Woods hosts volunteer work parties (9 so far) and guided walking tours through the woods. Check our blog for details on these and other events in the woods.
