Geocache Description:

The cache box is located in a large pipe in the LaGrande Day Use Park just off Hwy 7.

Nisqually River Project Tacoma Power began generating electricity from the water of the Nisqually River nearly 100 years ago. The original diversion dam, completed in 1912, was replaced in 1945 with Alder Dam and LaGrande Dam. The Nisqually River Project is Tacoma Power's second-largest hydroelectric resource, generating enough power to serve nearly 43,000 Northwest homes. As part of its responsibility for owning the Nisqually River Project, Tacoma Power provides fisheries and wildlife habitat programs while providing recreational opportunities. Kokanee planting, nesting boxes for wood ducks and bluebirds, and improving elk forage are just a few of the programs in and around Alder Lake and the surrounding 3,500 acres of wildlife land. A second federal license for the Nisqually River Project was issued in 1997. The license was developed with the Nisqually Tribe, Nisqually River Council and agencies, including the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service.
