Cheasty Grnblt & Mt.View Nat. Areas 1993

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 aquisition will be an addition of five acres to expand the Cheasty and Mt. View Natural Areas in east/central Seattle to enhance one of Seattle’s significant greenbelts. The property is heavily wooded and has a variety of habitat areas and natural springs.
