MSA has worked with several Port districts (Brownsville, Kingston, Winslow, Tacoma, Port Angeles, Port Townsend, etc.) to provide necessary biological consultant work in a myriad of projects. For example, for the Port of Port Angeles we wrote several Biological Evaluations for the Boat Haven Marina Redevelopment Project, involving the marina railway ramp area, the Tumwater Creek Bridge Replacement Project, and the LeTourneau Boat Ramp Project. In addition, MSA wrote a Biological Evaluation Supplement with the help of Port of Port Angeles personnel pertaining to the Coffer Dam project in the old graving dock area.

MSA divers also conducted extensive dive surveys in the Dunlap Towing log storage area in Port Angeles Bay and produced a habitat report of their findings.

Marine Surveys and Assessments (MSA) has produced over 350 Biological Evaluation documents for a wide range of projects throughout Puget Sound and Lake Washington since 2000. These evaluations include the results of habitat surveys conducted by MSA divers, a discussion of the threatened and endangered species in the action area, effects analysis of the proposed projects and appropriate mitigation measures to minimize the impacts of each particular project. In addition, MSA has been involved in conducting eelgrass/macroalgae surveys and the production of mitigation and long term monitoring plans for projects that may have impacts on macroalgae and eelgrass beds.

North Beach in Port Townsend offers so much to anyone that loves to be in nature.  Eagles soaring over your head, sea glass laying in the sand on a beautiful sunshine filled day at a perfect 68 degree day and no humidity.  0519141139 (1)

These amazing eagles were just a few feet away when I took this picture.  0519141139a (1)I met a couple of people on the beach that were visiting from New York, and Georgia while walking the beach and they could not believe what amazing weather and beauty the Olympic Peninsula offers.  Many of these folks are planning to retire in the next couple of years and are visiting several states in order to make a decision on where they will be retiring.

Many of these folks think this area is too expensive for them to purchase their retirement dream home.  They are so excited when I talk to them about our current market prices and give them my website where they can search for current properties for sale.

(from their website)

Welcome to our Lavender Farm!

LavenderNestled in the valley below the majestic Olympic Mountains in Sequim, Washington, Lost Mountain Lavender is a three acre farm with over 120 different varieties of lavender and a wide assortment of trees and wildlife for our guests to enjoy. You never know if you’ll see a deer stealing a meal from our bountiful fruit orchard or catch our covey of quail out with their young in the rose bushes or lavender fields.

In the summer, you can pick your own fragrant bouquet of lavender from our field or just relax under one of our trees with a picnic. In spring and fall you’ll probably find us out working in the field weeding or pruning the plants. And in the winter, you might catch the lavender under a soft blanket of snow, a truly beautiful sight. Everyday is a good day to visit and full of possibilities.

While you’re visiting, be sure to stop by the Cottage Gift Shop. Rumored to be an old moonshiner’s shed, this vintage building has been converted into a charming gift shop that holds a vast array of handcrafted lavender products.

knowitall

(from their website)

A bit about Martha Lane Lavender:  After coming to the 2004 Sequim Lavender Festival, Julie Ingram rediscovered her love of lavender and decided to plunge into the farming business with her partner, Mike Greenhaw.  They found the property in February 2005 when it was a neglected Christmas tree farm.  The field today contains about 3000 plants.  In the field are several different lavender varieties.  They are as follows: Royal Velvet, Sachet, Folgate, Super, Grosso, Maillette, Royal Purple, Hidcote Pink, Violet Intrigue and Hidcote Giant.  Also, sprinkled throughout the field are some Wyckoff, Edelweiss, White Spike, Miss Katherine, Hidcote, Purple Bouquet, Melissa, Provence, Martha Roderick and Old English plants. The 18th annual Sequim Lavender Festival for 2014 is July 18- 20.  We will be on the self-guided tour along with several other member farms. Come and see us in our new Victorian style home and gift shop.  Pick up one of our SLGA driving guides on the ferry or in Sequim at the vistors center.  We will also have a booth at the Street Fair.  We are looking forward to meeting you and sharing our love of lavender with you.
