Larkspur Meadows, Ph. 4

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

This purchase of 120 acres continues protection for the most significant and largest population of two endangered plants, the Wenatchee larkspur and Oregon checkermallow, as well as scenic meadow lands. These lands are under heavy pressure for residential and vacation homesite development.
