East Duwamish Greenbelt

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

This agreement is for the purchase of 5.4 acres to help consolidate public ownership of this extensive wildlife habitat area located within the South Beacon Hill neighborhood in Seattle.
