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.
King County purchased 350 acres of riverfront, wetlands, and uplands at the confluence of the three forks of the Snoqualmie River, approximately one mile north of North Bend. Project area provides outstanding undisturbed Riparian Protection habitat supporting a wide variety of wildlife species. Project complements North Bend/Snoqualmie’s Meadowbrook Farm project nearby.
