Flume Creek Habitat Area

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

Clark County will use this grant to acquire 150.33 acres of shoreline, wetlands, and mature upland forest located on the southwest edge of the City of Ridgefield. The property lies immediately east of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. The site contains a variety of habitats and will help create one of the most important biodiversity areas in southwest Washington. The primary purpose of the project is habitat protection and the primary outdoor recreational use is public access for hiking and wildlife viewing.
