Mount Si NRCA, 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

This project is for the addition to the Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area (NRCA) of habitat and recreation land subject to residential development. Mount Si is a popular recreation destination for Puget Sound residents, as well as providing significant environmental protection to rare natural resources.
