Naval Radio Station (T)

Jim Creek, Washington


NAVAL RADIO STATION (T) JIM CREEK

The primary mission of this radio site is to provide radio transmitting capabilities for the Pacific submarine fleet. Established in the 1950's, the transmitting system developed for the site remains 'state-of-the-art' in producing low frequency emissions world-wide. Located near Arlington, Washington, in the foothills of the Cascades, north of Seattle, the site has 5,000 largely forested acres.

In 1991, the Navy purchased rights to 250 acres of old growth forest, using $3 million of Legacy Resource Management Program funding to secure the largest remaining old-growth Spruce and Cedar forest in Puget Sound. Natural mountain lakes provide pristine habitat for wildlife including beaver, river otter, waterfowl and Bald Eagles.

The Jim Creek Wilderness Area has been designated for recreational use by military and DoD civilian personnel. Programs include environmental education, outdoor recreation and leadership training and sponsorship of special events. Facilities include a campground with a gym, social center and store. Navy Legacy projects include trail construction, and a salmon hatchery built in cooperation with the Stillaquamish Indian Tribe to restock the salmon spawning stream.

To request access, apply in writing. Include group name, address and phone of leader, date and alternate, list of names, and make, model and license of vehicles. There is a day user's fee.

NAVY NATURAL RESOURCES AND LAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

The Navy and Marine Corps manage more than four million acres worldwide. Much of this land is located in sensitive wetlands along valuable coastlines, some of the most ecologically significant areas in the world. The location of our real estate holdings makes it imperative that we plan and execute our various military missions in harmony with our environment. It is a Department of the Navy goal to promote an environmental ethic within the Navy workforce.

The Department of the Navy supports numerous partnerships with other Federal, State, local and private resource groups to promote such programs as the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement, and Watchable Wildlife.

To succeed in its mission, and to earn public confidence, the Navy must emphasize natural resources stewardship in every aspect of its land use. It does. Come and see for yourself and discover our resources.


The U.S. Navy and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of neotropical migratory birds. For information, call U.S. Navy at (703) 325-0427 or NFWF at (202) 857-0166.
