Description    


In partnership with Jefferson County, Jefferson Land Trust acquired and protected two parcels (21.9 acres, Berntsen) in the Powerlines Reach of the Duckabush River floodplain. This property is located on a portion of the unconstrained channel migration zone, riparian, upland and wetland habitat complex of the Duckabush. A 0.2 acre Fulton and 0.34 acre Larson properties located on the north bank of the Dosewallips River, which was previously acquired by Jefferson County with County funds, is also being protected by a Deed of Right. Both rivers are home to the Mid-Hood Canal stock of Puget Sound chinook, as well as stocks of summer and fall-run chum salmon, steelhead, coho salmon and pink salmon (SaSI 2007).

Jefferson County worked with Jefferson Land Trust to clean up the Duckabush properties, removing weeds, installing a gate, and replanting with conifers and other native seedlings. The Duckabush portion of the project was also expanded to include replanting and weed control on two acres of the adjacent Selfridge property (APN# 502 174 006) which had recently been acquired by the Jefferson Land Trust (09 RCO grant). In addition, the Dosewallips portion of the project was expanded to include replanting and underplanting over a 30-acre portion (which increased restoration costs 3x) of floodplain property located along the south bank of the river on parcels previously acquired by Jefferson County (04 RCO grant - formerly Swift, Johnson and Barney).

The primary goal of the project was to protect existing high quality habitat of the Duckabush and Dosewalllips river floodplains critical to chinook recovery. Objectives included fee simple acquisition of the Berntsen-Poetter property, weed control, removal of solid waste and a derelict vehicle, prevention of ATV access, decommissioning a driveway, decommissioning an on-site system (Selfridge) and replanting to native species.

Total acreage: 54.44

Project Benefit    


The goal of this project was to acquire fee simple or lesser interest in up to three parcels containing diverse habitats associated with the floodplains of the Duckabush and Dosewallips rivers. A total of 22.44 acres were acquired and an additional 32 acres were added to the project for the purpose of treating weeds and replanting. Total project acreage is 54.44
