Admiralty Inlet NAP Rare Native Prairies Expansion

Category Overview

The State Lands Restoration and Enhancement category provides funding to two state agencies to help repair damaged plant and animal habitat. These grants focus on resource preservation and protection of public lands. Projects in this category help bring important natural areas and resources back to their original functions by improving the self sustaining and ecological functionality of sites.

Project Highlights

The Department of Natural Resources, partnering with the Whidbey Camano Land Trust,will restore rare costal prairie and endangered plant habitat on Admiralty Inlet Natural Area Preserve (NAP). The project will restore 2.2 acres of native prairie and Golden Paintbrush habitat on two portions of the NAP (Prairies 1 and 2). This will be done by removing invasive and non-native species, and planting native prairie species, including Golden Paintbrush. Seeding with native dominant prairie species will also be done. The primary habitat restored through this project is coastal prairie.
