Located on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula, Clear Creek Trail is almost 8 miles from Silverdale Waterfront Park on Dyes Inlet north to Trigger Avenue.  It follows Clear Creek as it meanders through riparian areas, wetlands, and remnant forests.  Hard to believe it's in the middle of a highly developed urban area.

COMING EVENTS

Vegetation Monitoring

 

Clear Creek Vegetation Surveys are held annually to document the diverse species of plants along the shoreline at each of the four monitoring sites.
An 88 meter transect is run parallel to the stream and above wrack line. The first quadrat is placed to the south of the water quality monitoring transect line, the second at the transect intercept, and the two additional observations are made to the north of the second placement.


All plant types within the quadrat are recorded along with the percentage of the total vegetation cover each represents. If bare earth is within the quadrat, the percentage of plants may not equal 100%.

We start with the low tides around 8a on the 10th and 9a on the 11th. Boots or sturdy shoes are best. And dress for the weather as this is a rain or shine event.
