Description    


The Land Trust proposes to pursue permanent protection of 0.26 mile of Nisqually River shoreline along the Pierce County side of the McKenna Reach. This project will protect approximately 12 acres including the river shoreline and forested bluff. The bluff contains remnant old-growth Douglas-fir and western red cedar, and there is a side-channel that runs along the toe of the slope. The proposed protection area is an undeveloped portion of three rural residential parcels that are zoned rural 10.
This project will benefit Chinook, Coho, Chum, Pinks, and Steelhead.

Project Benefit    


The proposed acquisition will permanently protect existing forested river shoreline and off-channel habitat.
