State wants local nature preserve

September 22, 2011

A proposal by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources would take over 700 acres of school trust lands near Northport off the books and transfer the acreage to a nature preserve program in order to protect what the department calls “unique features” in the area.
The proposed Trombetta Canyon Natural Area Preserve (NAP) would encompass 1,060 acres
of timberland just southeast of Northport, of which 760 acres is currently state trust land.
Around 300 acres of the proposed area is currently in private ownership.
