Quimper West, an 80-acre property, is part of Port Townsend’s Quimper Wildlife Corridor, a 3.5-mile band of forest stretchingMonthly Meanders logo across the tip of the Quimper Peninsula from Fort Worden to McCurdy Point. This greenbelt links six wetlands along a 100-year floodplain and natural drainage basin, which filters urban stormwater and is where 70 percent of Puget Sound’s seabird populations nest.

 Quimper West is a long rectangle, densely filled with trees and shrubs. Trails meander through tall Western Redcedars, Douglas Firs, Grand Firs, Madrona, and a giant Sitka Spruce. In June, Pacific Rhododendrons bloom and Salmonberries ripen. Join Preserve Stewards Wendy Feltham and Eileen Cooney as they guide you through this beautiful section of the Quimper Wildlife Corridor.

Site details: Mostly level, partially developed trails.

Registration for September Meander at Snow Creek Estuary will be posted on August 15.
