Protected in 2006
- Many organizations teamed up to protect the rare and valuable prairie habitat found on the site. This 810 acre parcel connects multiple other conservation lands and protects huge areas of remnant prairie habitat.
- West Rocky Prairie plays host to over 300 acres of mounded prairie, 360 acres of wetlands, 40 acres of oak woodland and 300 acres mixed forest.
- The extensive wetland complex found throughout the property support 1 of 3 known populations of the endangered Oregon spotted frog and the Olympic mudminnow.
- Also, the quality habitat found in the West Rocky Prairie provides a unique opportunity for the reintroduction of many species of endangered species such as the Western pond turtle.
