Category Overview

Critical Habitat projects are our state’s primary tool for conserving important fish and wildlife habitat. These projects protect the rich and diverse habitats in our forests, prairies, and wetlands. These funds help maintain our state’s biodiversity and protect species that are popular for hunting, birding, and other outdoor recreation, and are critical for the health of our salmon and fish populations.

Project Highlights

Acquisition of 14.86 acres of wetland areas on Loon Lake in Stevens County. The marsh area provides habitat for loons and other migratory waterfowl. The lake offers good fishing and has the state record for the largest mackinaw caught in Washington.
