Who Blew Up The Outhouse? Washington DNR Investigating

Washington DNR Press Release: 

OLYMPIA, Wash. - On the weekend of July 28-29, one or more vandals destroyed an outhouse at Middle Waddell Trailhead Parking Area in Capitol State Forest (see photo). Estimates to replace this building — an outhouse — are not yet available but it could run to $8,000 or more. It's money that DNR would rather spend on maintaining and enhancing its current facilities for visitors to state trust lands, not picking up the pieces after vandals.

Please report suspicious activity that you see in state forests and other lands to 911. In April an alert visitor to Woodard Bay Natural Resources Conservation Area, a site managed by DNR, phoned in a tip that helped a Thurston County sheriff's deputy catch two suspects in the act of breaking into a historic building at the site.

Do you have a comment or suggestion to help reduce the vandalism and theft from state trust lands? Visit us on Facebook.
