Gloyd Seeps Wildlife Habitat Restoration

Category Overview

The State Lands Restoration and Enhancement category provides funding to two state agencies to help repair damaged plant and animal habitat. These grants focus on resource preservation and protection of public lands. Projects in this category help bring important natural areas and resources back to their original functions by improving the self sustaining and ecological functionality of sites.

Project Highlights

The Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to restore 73 acres of shrub-steppe habitat along Crab Creek, in the Gloyd Seeps Unit of the Columbia Basin Wildlife Area. The goal is to create dense nesting cover for birds and waterfowl. The department will remove unwanted grasses and noxious weeds then seed the area with a mix of native grasses and wildflowers. The area is a very popular destination for hunting, hiking, camping, and bird watching.
