Cattle Point NRCA 96

Category Overview

As Washington continues to grow, many of our most beautiful areas are threatened with development. In addition, native ecosystems are receding, and important wildlife habitat and migratory pathways are being cut off. The Natural Areas category helps combat this by funding projects that protect wildlife habitat and rare geological features while also preserving public access for back-country recreation.

Project Highlights

This project completes acquisition along Griffin Bay in San Juan County of over 1,000 feet of waterfront containing the last unprotected portion of Third Lagoon. This site, which is used by bald eagles, links DNR and National Park Service lands, ensures continued public enjoyment of waterfront trails, and protects an important scientific area.
