Coastal NAP – 1996

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 in Grays Harbor and Pacific counties secures up to 2,500 acres of high priority, willing seller properties within five coastal natural area preserves, including Elk, Bone, Chehalis, and Niawiakum Rivers and North Bay. Project has five federal matching grants, one on each site, totalling $2.75 million.
