Central Kitsap Riparian Corridor, Ph.1

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

This project begins protection by fee simple and easements on about 200 acres in Kitsap County and includes stream ravines, timber rights, and estuarine/tideland areas, which are critical to recovery of weak salmon stocks in Anderson, Big Beef, and Seabeck creeks. The coho stocks are listed as “depressed”, and the early chum stocks as “critical”.
