Grayland Property

Category Overview

Conserving land along our waterways protects important habitat and helps keep our rivers healthy, clean, and more resilient to drought. Riparian Protection projects conserve and restore fresh and saltwater habitat while protecting fish habitat. In doing so, the grants help provide our families, farms, and fisheries with clean water across the state.

Project Highlights

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant funding to purchase approximately 1,408 acres of a large wetland complex located along the pacific coast in Grays Harbor County two miles south of the town of Westport. The site is in the lower Chehalis watershed adjacent to the Elk River estuary. The Property contains over 1,000 acres of freshwater and estuarine wetland habitats including interdunal wet/swale complexes, as well as post-mature and earlier successional forested uplands and grasslands. This project supports passive recreation and habitat conservation.
