a time to cut

... and along with good news comes the hard reality of changes to come....

from; Lisa Lantz, Resource Steward, SW Region, Washington State Parks  Oct. 31, 2011

"The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission has not finalized plans for dealing with the bulk of the trees that are infected with laminated root rot (Phellinus weirii).  However, for the safety of our staff, we are moving forward with removing infected  trees in the immediate vicinity of the park office and the ranger residence.  This work will be carried out over the next few days, and it is separate from the work in the campground.

History is where we make it

History, story, inquiry, witness.... although the time is drawing near for trees to start coming down in Kopachuck Park, their story will not be forgotten.  "All events that are remembered and preserved in some authentic form constitute the historical record."

 It is a bittersweet pleasure to report that the Intertwined exhibit will be hosted at the Washington State History Museum in early 2012.  Stay tuned for more information as it develops.
