Cottone Conservation Easement
Conserved in 2021
- This 10-acre conservation easement protects water quality in Hopkins Ditch (a tributary to Salmon Creek and the Black River) and mature, uneven-aged forests.
- Most of the property is covered by naturally regenerated conifers and hardwoods, some of which are over 100 years old. The landowner also planted many conifers, including coast redwood, western redcedar, Sitka spruce, and grand fir.
- The forest understory (the shrubby layer of the forest) contains a variety of native plants, which provides food and other resources for many animals.
