Kitsap Forest NAP 
 

This 572-acre forested site on the Kitsap Peninsula became a natural area preserve in 1998.  Mature and old growth douglas fir and western hemlock dominate this forest with rhododendron, evergreen huckleberry, and sword fern in the forest understory.  This is one of the few extensive unlogged mature forests remaining in the central or southern Puget Trough ecoregion.  The site also protects portions of Stavis Creek, which supports coho and chum salmon spawning grounds, a blue heron rookery, and nesting osprey. The ecological integrity of Kitsap Forest NAP is protected by the Stavis Natural Resources Conservation Area, which surrounds it. (Kitsap County)
