‘You’re shooting at my home!’: Neighbors happy popular Greenwater target-shooting area is now closed
PIERCE COUNTY, Wash.-- A popular but misused spot for target shooting on U.S. Forest Service land in the Greenwater area near Mount Rainier has only been closed for two days now. But already the first two signs letting shooting enthusiasts know about the change have been set on fire. "I’m sure there’s a lot of unhappy target shooters," says Wendy Scholl, a community activist with the Crystal River Ranch subdivision less than a mile away from the shooting area. She and many others in her community have been trying to educate target shooters here for more than a decade.
