Chehalis River Davis Creek Expansion

Category Overview

Conserving land along our waterways protects important habitat and helps keep our rivers healthy, clean, and more resilient to drought. Riparian Protection projects conserve and restore fresh and saltwater habitat while protecting fish habitat. In doing so, the grants help provide our families, farms, and fisheries with clean water across the state.

Project Highlights

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to purchase about 407 acres of floodplain habitat along the Chehalis River in Grays Harbor County near the Davis Creek Wildlife Area Unit. The property provides Riparian Protection and riverbank connectivity to other conservation lands in the area. The primary benefit of this project is habitat conservation.
