Chehalis River Surge Plain NAP 2008

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 Natural Resources used this grant to purchase almost 6 acres of real property located within the Chehalis River Surge Plain Natural Area Preserve. Restoration on 6 acres included vegetation management of invasive species and planting of native species.
