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.
Acquire approximately 280 acres of forested lands and bugger area which provide nesting and feeding area for a large colony of Great Blud Herons. The colony is the largest in Puget Sound and is in danger due to the encroachment of development.
