Golden Doe

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 conserve 110 acres of sagebrush-steppe and grasslands surrounded by the Golden Doe Unit of the Methow Wildlife Area. The land is home to large, year-round populations and seasonal concentrations of mule deer as well as black bears, coyotes, and golden eagles. The potential for development here is high. The Golden Doe Unit has little public access. This purchase would provide much and improved access to the area.
