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.
This project consists of the acquisition of up to 1,200 acres of diverse wetland habitat in Pacific County near Tokeland. The property has estuaries, wetlands, and second class tidelands which provide habitat for many shorebirds and migrating waterfowl. A legal description of the property acquired will be incorporated into the Agreement prior to final reimbursement.
