Hoh River Recreation and Conservation Area  

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 Nature Conservancy is proposing to acquire private parcels in three separate worksites totaling 1,080 acres along the Hoh River and three tributary streams. The property will be managed to restore old-growth forest habitat and stream habitat. The land will be open for public and tribal use and the primary opportunities provided by this grant are conservation, hunting, fishing, boating, birding, and hiking.
