One Square Inch Of Silence

One Square Inch of Silence

The Hoh Rain Forest at Olympic National Park is the least noise-polluted place in the lower 48 states–an acoustic haven for both park visitors and wildlife that depend on a pristine acoustic environment to communicate. Silence is not the absence of something but the presence of everything. All proceeds from this unedited recording will be donated to The One Square Inch of Silence Foundation.
