Snohomish River Delta Wetlands

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

Protection for cattail/bullrush marshes south of Marysville which help maintain the natural water quality of the Snohomish River estuary. Area acquired also provides important habitat for eagles, heron, songbirds, and waterfowl. Wildlife watching tourism in the area has developed into a viable business.
