Description    


The Land Trust proposes to pursue permanent protection through fee acquisition of three parcels totaling 5 acres, and a permanent conservation easement on an additional 1.5 acres along Ohop Creek between river mile 5.6 and 6.2. These properties include 2,100 feet of Ohop Creek shoreline along a critical spawning reach and significant portions of these properties are within the Ohop Creek floodplain. This reach of Ohop Creek is utilized by Chinook, chum, coho, pink, and steelhead. This project focuses on acquisitions to support salmon recovery partner efforts to enhance and restore in-stream, riparian, and floodplain processes and habitat along this reach of Ohop Creek.

Project Benefit    


Permanently protect priority freshwater shoreline, riparian, and floodplain habitats. Provide opportunities for salmon recovery partners to increase the amount of fully functioning riparian habitat along Ohop Creek to support Nisqually Chinook and steelhead recovery goals.
