Mud Lake/Lewis River
- Funded in 2009
Clark County will use this grant to buy 341 acres of shoreline, wetlands, and forests on Mud Lake and the Lewis River, 2 miles upstream of the Columbia River. The site is a key link between Clark County's two largest protected habitat areas - the 5,280-acre Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge and the 2,200-acre East Fork Lewis Greenway and Habitat System. It also is a central feature in a bi-state system of protected habitat lands on the Columbia River between the Willamette and Lewis Rivers. The purchase will include 1 mile of shoreline on the Lewis River and the entire bed and shoreline of the 74-acre Mud Lake. The site encompasses seven priority habitats and 33 priority species and communities, and provides habitat for four salmon populations, threatened with extinction. The land provides opportunities for hiking, bird watching, and outdoor education, and is part of the Lewis and Columbia River water trail systems. The county will contribute $536,140 in conservation futures and a federal grant. (08-1247)
