Western Gray Squirrel Ph. 1

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 purchase of 640 acres in Klickitat County is adjacent to the south boundary of the Klickitat Wildlife Area and protects habitat for the threatened western gray squirrel and other species.
