Lower Big Beef Creek Acquisition

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

Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group will use this grant to buy about 297 acres of land in the lower Big Beef Creek watershed. The area includes wetlands and forests and is used by Hood Canal summer chum. The enhancement group will contribute more than $1.8 million in conservation futures, a federal grant, and a grant from the state salmon recovery program.
