Quimper West Preserve includes beautiful mature forest zones threaded with footpaths.

Over the past few years community members have gathered at this 80-acre Preserve along North Jacob Miller Road to lead a concerted attack against non-native holly. Since then, our Preserve Stewards have been working hard at identifying new patches, and it is time to rally the troops again! We will focus on hand-pulling and cutting holly in this mature forested preserve crisscrossed with user-generated trails. This Preserve is part of the 3-mile long “Quimper Wildlife Corridor” that is protected by Jefferson Land Trust, the City of Port Townsend, and Jefferson County to support wildlife movement, wetlands, water quality, and bird habitat.
