Letterbox Retrieved from Port of Skagit’s Trail System

.

Burlington – Letterboxers filled 20 pages of the notebook in the Port of Skagit’s letterbox with colorful messages and stamps while participating in the 2010 Skagit Watershed Letterbox Trail program, sponsored by the Skagit Conservation Education Alliance.

The 2010 Skagit Watershed Letterbox Trail started June 19 and runs through October. Each year, local conservation organizations partner to hide letterboxes all along the Skagit River Watershed, from the North Cascades National Park in the east to Washington Park in the west. One letterbox was located on port property along the Port of Skagit Nature Trails.

 Each box contained fun educational materials about the watershed, along with a notebook and ink-stamp for trading stamps. Clues were available at local public libraries and other locations and were published on-line at www.skagitwater.org.
