Saturday Madrona walk hosted by Josh Farley

The Madrona Trails is a 15-acre forest within the city of Bremerton, and until recently had been overgrown with invasive species and strewn with trash. Neighbors of the forest banded together and over the past two years have cleaned up the forest, pushed back against ivy, holly and other invasives, and created an easy-to-walk 1.25 mile path that surveys the perimeter. While all northwest conifers are on display, its dense collection of Arbutus menziesii has turned heads even among area arborists.

Start time: 10 am April 9

Location: Bremerton YMCA, 2261 Homer Jones Drive, Bremerton.
