“The logic is simple; if a loud noise, such as the passing of an aircraft, can impact many square miles, then a natural place, if maintained in a 100 percent noise-free condition, will also impact many square miles around it.”

Help Protect Olympic from Jet Noise
Join us for a training on how you can speak up for natural quiet in Olympic National Park by getting involved in the Hear Our Olympics campaign. Be a part of making the case to our elected officials that increased jet noise is bad for Olympic National Park and the surrounding communities.
The Hoh Rainforest is one of the quietest places in the Lower 48, serving as essential wildlife habitat and recreational space for visitors from all over the world. But the Navy plans to expand the number of “Growler” fighter jets it flies over and around Olympic National Park by thousands of new flights, threatening the pristine natural soundscape of the Hoh Rainforest and beyond.
The event will showcase a new smartphone app that you can use to report where and when you hear Growler jets when you visit Olympic National Park. You'll also learn how to make sure that elected officials are standing with us and that the Navy hears your voice in their upcoming public comment period on this issue.
The event is hosted by National Parks Conservation Association and Sound Defense Alliance with support from Olympic Forest Coalition, Olympic Park Associates, and Save The Olympic Peninsula. Light refreshments will be provided.
