Critical Habitat projects are our state’s primary tool for conserving important fish and wildlife habitat. These projects protect the rich and diverse habitats in our forests, prairies, and wetlands. These funds help maintain our state’s biodiversity and protect species that are popular for hunting, birding, and other outdoor recreation, and are critical for the health of our salmon and fish populations.
This property provides habitat for a large elk herd, white-tailed and mule deer, bighorn sheep, chucklar, pheasants, blue grouse, ruffed grouse, quail, migratory waterfowl and a myriad of nongame species including bald and golden eagles, cooper’s hawks, red-tailed hawks, and prairie falcons. Property offers excellent public recreation opportunities and provides access to the Grande Ronde River which is popular for steelhead fishing.
