Dabob Bay Public Hearing – July 26, 2021

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has scheduled a public hearing to get your input about protecting the state forests of Dabob Bay!

Right now, DNR proposes to preserve 820 acres of state forestland within a portion of the Dabob Bay Natural Area that was expanded in 2016.

The legislature approved funding for this transaction in 2019 and the public comment period is the final step to permanently conserve the state forest as part of the Natural Area and reimburse the timber trusts.

Now is the critical moment to show support:

What:   Public Hearing (in person, masked/distanced)

When:  6:00 PM, Monday, July 26 (arrive early to sign in to speak)

Where: Quilcene School Multipurpose Room (gym)

Please come in person if you can, but a zoom webinar is available for those who wish to attend online. Register at:

Talking points for your email:

I support DNR’s proposed protection of state forestlands within the Dabob Bay Natural Area boundaries.
I request that School Trust parcels CS 6,7, 11, 12, and 13 on the Toandos Peninsula NOT be including in the exchange as these involve globally rare forest types that DNR is obligated to protect and which are proposed for conservation.
