Peregrine Falcon Habitat Ph. 2

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

This project consists of the acquisition of 356 acres of peregrine falcon habitat, which includes several active eyries and over 100 acres of critical wetlands in San Juan and Skagit counties.
