Cypress Island NRCA – Ph. 2

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 involves the purchase of an additional 163 acres of threatened properties on Cypress Island in Skagit County.
