Come with Nature Now host (and past Jefferson Land Trust Board member) Nan Evans to the forests of Chimacum Ridge as she talks with Jefferson Land Trust’s Stewardship Director Erik Kingfisher and his wife Jen Kingfisher about their family’s recent experiences living at the foot of the Ridge. In Episode #631, “A Family’s Experience on Chimacum Ridge,” hear about how strong relationships with place were built, learn about the Ridge’s ecological features, and visualize its future transformation into a community forest for the enjoyment of all.

Originally airing August 9 on Port Townsend’s own KPTZ 91.9 FM, this is the second in a series of Nature Now episodes featuring Chimacum Ridge to be released through the next year or so. The first, featuring a discussion with geologist, woodworker, and Land Trust Board Member Tim Lawson about the geology of the Ridge, aired earlier this summer.
