Washougal Oaks Natural Area 2012

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

The Department of Natural Resources used this grant to attempt to acquire land within the Washougal Oaks Natural Area. Unfortunately no properties were acquired as there were no willing sellers.
