Duckabush Wetlands

Category Overview

Critical Habitat projects are our state’s primary tool for conserving important fish and wildlife habitat. These projects protect the rich and diverse habitats in our forests, prairies, and wetlands. These funds help maintain our state’s biodiversity and protect species that are popular for hunting, birding, and other outdoor recreation, and are critical for the health of our salmon and fish populations.

Project Highlights

This 65-acre purchase in eastern Jefferson County secures a portion of the Duckabush River Delta tidelands, which are important to shellfish, trumpeter swans, seals, and critical fish stocks.
