Miller 4-Bravo Farmland and Ranch

Category Overview

Farmland Preservation protects valuable farmland and habitat for recreationally important animals, like salmon, birds, deer, and elk. These projects allow families to continue farming the land they have worked on for generations, and provide Washingtonians with healthy local food and a diverse economy. WWRP is the only source of farmland preservation funding in the state budget.

Project Highlights

The Okanogan Land Trust will use this grant to acquire a permanent agricultural conservation easement on land located adjacent to Highway 21 south of Curlew in Ferry County. The easement will protect about 371 acres of irrigated farmland and pastureland, along with mixed wildlife habitat including aspen and dry mixed conifer forest. The easement will prevent future development and ensure the land will remain available for farming in perpetuity.
