Conserved in 2020
- This 74-acre conservation easement protects 4,600 feet of the Skookumchuck River, which flows into the Chehalis River.
- This stretch of river provides habitat for spring and fall Chinook salmon, coho salmon, and winter steelhead. Waterfowl use both the river and adjacent wetlands. A variety of large mammals utilize the property, particularly elk.
