Issaquah Creek WaterWays – Phase 1

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

Issaquah will use this grant to acquire 7.8 acres of creek-side properties for the protection of Chinook salmon. The Johnson Property, also known as Guano Acres, is one of the last large and undeveloped properties on the creek in the city.
