Description    


Washington State Parks acquired high quality salmon-rearing habitat and cold-water refuge and spawning beds for steelhead, sea-run cutthroat, Chinook and coho salmon along portions of Slough Creek and the Washougal River in Clark County. Approximately 5.44 acres and 331.21 lineal feet of high quality riparian habitat that was highly threatened by development was secured through fee title purchase from Helping Homes Development Corporation (Elden Roy Gosney, President). Project supporters include WDFW, the Camas-Washougal Wildlife League, and Habitat Partners. Protection of this land prevents future development and destruction of riparian vegetation and habitat conditions.

Project Benefit    


The goal of the project is to protect intact habitat from degradation. The objective of the project is to protect salmon refugia and habitat that is part of a key ecological process.
