It is rare when a citizen in a city the size of Washington donates 67 acres for a nature reserve. In fact, many, many cities much larger than Washington have never received a gift such as this for a nature reserve. It is in the city limits.
The gift is from Mrs. Frank (Jackie) Miller and her family. The city council accepted the acreage in west Washington at its meeting this past Monday. The land must be used for a nature reserve. It will be called the Miller-Post Nature Reserve and the property will be used to preserve the land and water areas in their natural vegetative, scenic, open or woodland conditions and to “retain such areas as suitable habitat for fish, plants or wildlife,” according to the deed restrictions.
