Devil's Head Acquisition
- Funded in 2009
Pierce County Parks and Recreation will use this grant to buy 94 acres at the southern end of the Key Peninsula, known as Devil's Head. The property has about 1 mile of high quality Puget Sound shoreline. The county plans to use the site for non-motorized boating, hiking, and beachcombing, as well as protecting wildlife habitat. Turning Devil's Head into a local park will preserve salmon habitat, wetlands, bald eagle nesting sites, bluffs, and forest. It also will preserve a scenic viewpoint of Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains. The site is also part of two important trail systems - the southern end of the Head-to-Toe trail system and the Cascadia Marine Trail. Pierce County will contribute $1,687,500. (08-1409)
