Pine Street Woods Community Forest

PINE STREET WOODS – YOUR FUTURE FAVORITE PLACE TO WALK, HIKE, BIKE, SNOWSHOE, NORDIC SKI, AND ENJOY NATURE

Communities with easy access to unspoiled nature thrive. They are healthier, happier and economically more vibrant.

Without easy access to nature, the Sandpoint community is missing out on the health and economic benefits linked to time spent outdoors. Kaniksu Land Trust is on a quest to fix that. Pine Street Woods  community forest, 160 acres of woodlands and meadows just minutes from Sandpoint, will provide a place where everyone can freely and frequently enjoy quiet recreation and hands-on learning in nature.

Your Gift Will Provide a Place in Nature for Our Community to Enjoy Forever

Feedback at recent City of Sandpoint workshops reinforced the overwhelming desire of our citizens to ensure that open space, for recreation and outdoor activities, is preserved for the future. Pine Street Woods directly addresses this desire of our community, while providing much needed health and education benefits.

Our goal is to raise $2.1 million to purchase the 160-acre parcel and for initial improvements; an access road, parking area at the trailhead and signage. So far, contributions of $1.78 million have come from foundations and individuals who believe in the value of Pine Street Woods as a long-term investment for the benefit of our community.

The people of Sandpoint are known for their generosity and making big things happen. Kaniksu Land Trust is confident that our community will contribute the remaining $325,000 and make Pine Street Woods a reality.
