Hood Canal

The Hood Canal is a unique natural waterway stretching for more than 50 miles through some of Puget Sound's most pristine forestlands. More than 50,000 acres around this waterway are under development pressure, threatening the economic and environmental health of the canal and local economies.

The Trust for Public Land is partnering with the U.S. Navy to limit development around the canal while creating a buffer area for navy operating ranges. Our efforts will help keep working forests intact, protect water resources crucial for shellfish and salmon, and ensure shoreline access for recreation
