Can we save The Lost Continent?

Between Bremerton and Silverdale there remains an area in Kitsap County so pristine and wild that it has been called “The Lost Continent.” Major portions of this unique natural area were acquired for the Illahee Preserve Kitsap Heritage Park between 2001 and 2007, but several key properties were unavailable.  We now have a very short opportunity to save this land for current and future generations!
