Boy Scouts executives to log 86 acres



Port Townsend, Wash. _ Boy Scouts executives plan to selectively log 86 acres on the Olympic Peninsula, despite an appeal from Gov. Gary Locke, a former Boy Scout himself. The Chief Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts has received all the required permits to log the property near Camp Parsons on Pulali Point, which is on Dabob Bay near Hood Canal.

Work could begin any time, Brad Farmer, the council's executive director, told The Sun newspaper of Bremerton.

Locke sent Farmer a letter urging him to "reconsider your harvest plans to have less of an environmental impact and to preserve the heritage of the scouting experience at Camp Parsons."
