Cypress Island NRCA, Ph. 3

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 is for the acquisition of the most environmentally significant private lands within the Cypress Island Natural Resources Conservation Area, (NRCA), five miles northwest of Anacortes.
