Conserved in 2015
- 20 acres located along Goldsborough Creek in Mason County.
- The preserve is mainly forested and shrub wetlands with 1,500 feet of North Fork Goldsborough Creek, and builds on the existing North Fork Goldsborough Creek Preserve.
- Capitol Land Trust, the Squaxin Island Tribe, and other partners have worked to restore salmon runs and habitat around Goldsborough Creek since 2001, when the Goldsborough Dam was removed.
- In the past 15 years, Goldsborough Creek has shown an increase in Coho salmon populations and Capitol Land Trust has permanently conserved more than 320 acres of forest lands, wetlands, and land along Goldsborough Creek and its tributaries.
