Join us for a training on how you can speak up for natural quiet in Olympic National Park by getting involved in our Hear Our Olympics campaign. Be a part of making the case to our elected officials that increased jet noise is bad for Olympic National Park and the surrounding communities.
The Hoh Rainforest is one of the quietest places in the Lower 48, serving as essential wildlife habitat and recreational space for visitors alike. But the Navy plans to expand the number of “Growler” fighter jets it flies over and around Olympic National Park by thousands of new flights, threatening the pristine natural soundscape of the Hoh Rainforest and beyond.
Together with our partners, we will teach you about our new smartphone app that you can use to report where and when you hear the sound of Growler jets when you visit Olympic National Park. We’ll also offer our best tips and tricks to make sure that elected officials are standing with us and that the Navy hears your voice in their upcoming public comment period on this issue.
