Trout Lake, Wetlands NAP

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 wetland site in Klickitat County provides vital habitat for a variety of endangered, threatened, and candidate species such as bald eagles, spotted frogs, sandhill cranes, great blue herons, cavity nesting ducks, Merriam’s turkeys, pileated woodpeckers, black-tailed deer, and elk. The site is considered one of the most valuable in Washington by amphibian experts.
