Description    


This project acquired five parcels along Issaquah Creek in the Middle Issaquah Creek Basin. The immediate benefits are the protection of 113 acres of mature forests, wetlands and a riparian corridor along 1-1/4 miles of both sides of Issaquah Creek. The parcels are a key component of the overall Issaquah Creek Waterways Program; a Program committed to preserving the best riparian habitat along Issaquah basin streams. The reach is part of a Regionally Significant Resource Area and provides excellent rearing and spawning habitat including process areas that offer braided channels and pools with high water refugia for juvenile fish, clean spawning gravel, large woody debris and a diverse and sinuous riparian corridor. The parcels provide a link in the wildlife corridor that incorporates Tiger Mountain and Squak Mountain State Forests, Taylor Mountain Forest and other protected forests and connects to the City of Seattle watershed (90,000 acres). In addition to the on-site habitat benefits, the mature forests and wetlands throughout this reach are essential to the protection of water quantity, water quality and aquatic habitat for all of Issaquah Creek. Issaquah Creek supports ESA-listed chinook, char (possibly ESA listed bull trout), sockeye, coho, kokanee, steelhead and cutthroat. Issaquah Creek is considered a WRIA 8-core area for chinook production and this reach has been identified as a high priority acquisition site in the WRIA 8 Near Term Action Agenda.
