Olympic National Park's Hoh Rainforest is one of the quietest places in the Lower 48. But the U.S. Navy plans to expand the number of “Growler” fighter jets it flies over and around Olympic by up to 5,000 flights a year, threatening the pristine natural soundscape of the Hoh Rainforest and beyond.
Fortunately, there’s an opportunity to make your voice heard. The Navy is currently looking for public input on its entire training and testing range in the Pacific Northwest, including its flight practices over Olympic, and will be hosting three public meetings about this.
Join us for a Q&A session before each meeting, where we’ll answer your questions about how you can protect Olympic’s pristine soundscape. Then, together we’ll attend the public meeting to speak up for natural quiet in Olympic.
