TRAILS -- 'The Bluff: Wildlife Nirvana, Crossroads or Death Trap?' -- That's the title of the keynote address planned for the annual public meeting of the Friends of the (South Hill) Bluff on Tuesday, (March 31) 6:30 p.m. at St. Stephens Episcopal Church, 5720 S. Perry St.

Ken Bevis, stewardship wildlife biologist with the Washington Department of Natural Resources, will evaluate the status of the wildly popular trail system and natural area that stretches below High Drive down to Hangman Creek.

The Friends of the Bluff works to coordinate volunteer to maintain the area, plan for its future, improve trails and forest health and make it fire-safe for the adjoining neighborhoods.
