Help us keep our clean, healthy rural life! Good water, good air, good local food.
We are families, retired folks on limited incomes, vacationers, campers and hikers, and businesses in Brinnon. We have a year round population of about 700 people.
What people love about Brinnon are its natural, unspoiled mountains, elk herds, rivers, beaches, clam and oyster flats and a small town feel. We nestle up to the World Heritage Olympic National Park.
Just around the corner from me in the Duckabush valley is Black Point and Pleasant Harbor Marina. A developer wants to build a golf course with 890 residential units, a hotel, restaurant, convention center and a commercial shopping center with more housing. This is called a Master Planned Resort which is a mini city adding more than 2200 people to the area each day. It would also add 4100 car and truck trips per day to the two lane road that handles all the traffic going around the Olympic Peninsula. All of the pollution from those cars and trucks eventually winds up in our fragile Fjord, Hood Canal.
The Brinnon Group and I have been fighting against this gargantuan development for 18 years. We now are fighting the county and the developer in court. All donations go to our legal fund.

I have lived on Mt Jupiter, right above Black Point and have walked in the abandoned campground that is Black Point many times. It is a very special place, with geological features called kettles, left there when the ice retreated thousands of years ago. They are made into parks many places and are significant places for some Native Peoples.
