The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum has announced that they will be creating a new level of membership for Kilchis Point Reserve. By joining “Friends of Kilchis Point” you will be ensuring the success and future of this spectacular site in Tillamook County. There are five levels of yearly participation: Individual- $25, Family $50, Partner $100, Sponsor-$250, and Patron-$500. Each level has a separate series of membership benefits. This is a separate membership from that of the Pioneer Museum, and all funds will be used at Kilchis Point Reserve for upkeep and development of the trails and educational programs. Those joining Friends of Kilchis Point Reserve before June 30, 2015, will be considered Charter Members. For more information or to sign up, please call the Museum at 503.842.4553.

Waters in the Kilchis Point streams have been rising with the rains this week, but gravel has been placed on most of the trails now, making a hike to Tillamook Bay possible even in damp weather. Wear your boots for the few muddy spots on the Flora and Fauna and Native American Trails, though.
There are a few new interpretive signs on the trails, too, thanks to Louisa Johnston and Gary Albright.

There has been a lot of trail improvement accomplished in the last few weeks at Kilchis Point Reserve, thanks largely to the hard working men from South Fork Camp. In the three weeks they were on site they made tremendous strides in placing gravel on the paths so that there is only a little left before the loops are finished. They also laid gravel at both ends of Bridge #6, making it easier to access the bridge. When you think that there is no motorized equipment used on the site, and that all the gravel has to be moved by the wheelbarrow load, it is amazing what has been done!
We thank these men for the dedication to our project and hope they will return in the New Year to help us finish the trails at Kilchis Point Reserve.

We had two groups of wonderful volunteers working on the trails this month. Luckily the weather has cooperated and lots has been accomplished.
Then on November 15, the Neah Kah Nie High School Honor Students returned to haul gravel and lay down more hog fuel along the paths. They come to Kilchis Point to help several times a year under the guidance of Beth Gienger and – while they work hard – they have a good time along the way.
In addition to our KPR volunteers, the crew from South Fork Work Camp came this month and have been hauling tons of gravel – literally! We could not make the progress we have done without this crew.
Thank you to all who treasure Kilchis Point Reserve and show their dedication through hard work!
