Conserved in 2006
- 105 acres on Gull Harbor, west of Boston Harbor Road in northern Thurston County and adjacent to the Cushman Conservation Easement.
- The conserved property is composed of the Gull Harbor estuary, freshwater and saltwater wetlands, lowland deciduous and coniferous forests, a segment of an unnamed perennial stream and hay fields.
- The property protects key habitats for seven different species of anadromous salmonids, including the Puget Sound chinook salmon (listed as threatened by the Endangered Species Act in 2005).
- The Bayfield property comprises the northern half of Gull Harbor. Gull Harbor is one of the last pristine estuaries in south Puget Sound.
