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 project to acquire 700 acres near Sequim, in Clallam County, protects an intertidal lagoon, tidelands, beaches/dunes, forested upland, and agricultural land for waterfowl. It also provides habitat for peregrine falcons, bald eagles, critical fish stocks, and shellfish. The site is threatened by incompatible residential development.
