Larkspur Meadows, Ph. 2

Category Overview

As Washington continues to grow, many of our most beautiful areas are threatened with development. In addition, native ecosystems are receding, and important wildlife habitat and migratory pathways are being cut off. The Natural Areas category helps combat this by funding projects that protect wildlife habitat and rare geological features while also preserving public access for back-country recreation.

Project Highlights

The purpose of this project is the addition of approximately 106 acres to the Larkspur Meadows NAP. Larkspur Meadows contains the largest population of both an endangered plant (Wenatchee larkspur) and a threatened plant (Oregon checkermallow).
