Swan Marsh

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

Acquisition of 140 acres of marsh next to Leadbetter Point State Park near the north end of the Long Beach Peninsula at Willapa Bay. At least 60 species of birds are known to nest on the site with other species identified during migration.
