North Bay

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 acquired 820 acres of a natural area, preserving six types of wetlands including both freshwater bogs and estuarine marshes. This project is located in Grays Harbor County, northwest of Aberdeen.
