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

The Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to buy 43.29 acres in Columbia County. The land provides habitat for golden eagles, American badgers, bighorn sheep, and mule deer. This project provides long-term support for these species’ habitat as well as opportunities for hunting, hiking, and wildlife viewing.
