Nisqually River at Powell Creek near Yelm
If you missed last week’s Nisqually River trail open house in Yelm, an online survey, open through Dec. 4, is available at surveymonkey.com/r/NisquallyRiverWaterTrail.
– Nisqually River trail open house to gather ideas was held in Yelm Thursday [Oct. 29]
“The Nisqually River Council will hold an open house Thursday [Oct. 29] to gather opinions as it continues development of the Nisqually River Water Trail.
The River Council is leading the project to prepare a plan for the development and management of a water trail on the main stem of the Nisqually, from below LaGrande Dam to the river delta where it meets Puget Sound within the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.
The goal is to develop public access points along the river for launching and taking out small human-powered boats, such as rafts, canoes, kayaks and inner tubes, while respecting current and future conservation efforts.”
Creating the Nisqually Water Trail would implement the “Recreation/Public Access/Tourism” goals of the Nisqually Watershed Stewardship Plan that was developed in 2003-04.
OPEN HOUSE: The meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the library of Yelm Middle School, 402 Yelm Ave. W.
