COMMITTEE OVERVIEW

Our mission is to preserve, promote, and protect Port Ludlow’s trails and natural resources.

Our mission is what we do.  How we perform our mission includes:

  • Maintenance of existing trails and natural resources
  • Developing new trails if future opportunities occur
  • Promoting community awareness and appreciation of the established walking/bike trails
  • Informing residents of their role in enhancing and nurturing the natural resources that abound in the area
  • Encouraging users to help maintain the trails

Over the past twenty years the Port Ludlow Trails/Natural Resources Committee has worked to develop, improve and maintain many trails in the community.  We now have over 25 miles of trails in the community. It is no surprise that in any survey of residents about what they value in Port Ludlow, trails are always in the top three. It is well documented that a community trail system adds significant value to the properties that have trails access. We also work to enhance the community’s natural resources with activities that include an annual Scotch Broom Pull, other noxious weed control activities, interpretive signs, maintaining various bird and bat houses, maintaining the Garden at Ludlow Falls, etc.
