Coulter Creek Park Acq 2010
- Funded in 2011
Mason County will use this grant to buy and develop about 50 acres at the head of North Bay, between Allyn and Victor. The property has about 18 acres of forest and about 32 acres of wetlands, primarily tidelands and mud flats. The County plans to develop a trailhead for the North Bay Trail, a boardwalk, and forested trail to a water viewpoint, as well as provide environmental education, historical interpretation, a community shellfish area, and a small parking area with a restroom. The majority of the property would be left undisturbed. Partners include the Allyn Business Association, Port of Allyn, Squaxin Island Tribe, and Taylor's Shellfish. The County will contribute $550,000 in cash, staff labor, grants, and cash donations.
