Conserved in 1995
- 1 acre of forested hillside between Capitol Boulevard and Interstate 5, above Capitol Lake, donated by John W. Yale in 1995.
- The forested Preserve provides important upland buffer for habitat around Capitol Lake and a filter for pollutants from Interstate 5.
- Even though this parcel is small and more urban than many Capitol Land Trust parcels, it still boasts a surprisingly diverse, native, plants and birds. Some of the birds that have been spotted on the parcel include red-breasted sapsucker, song sparrow, golden-crowned kinglet and spotted towhee. The bird habitat is a conglomeration of Douglas fir, vine maple, bigleaf maple, beaked hazel, snowberry, Oregon grape, orange honeysuckle and red huckleberry.
