'What Is A Park?"; IAC Vision for Kah Tai

Robert Wilder was the Director of the Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation (IAC) for Washington State throughout the process that led to the creation of Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park. His signature is found on virtually every relevant document. After the groundbreaking ceremony for the Park to be developed on the land south of the lagoon, Director Wilder sent a letter, dated 20 August 1985, to Port Townsend Park Superintendent Kevin Burke, along with his congratulations to the City leaders, the Park Board and citizens "for their vision and dedication...the Kah Tai Lagoon Park is unique and has an opportunity to be a wonderful community asset...a park that the citizens of Port Townsend will be able to look upon with great pride." With that letter he included the poem reprinted here (click on poem to enlarge).
