Conserved in 2020
- The Fox-Dobbs Preserve is 15 acres on Eld Inlet, including 650 feet of unmodified shoreline and about 10 acres of wetlands.
- This preserve is adjacent to McLane Point Preserve, which is adjacent to Triple Creek Farm Conservation Easement. Together, these three conserved properties cover 230 acres and 4.5 miles of shoreline.
- The site provides intact habitat for five salmonid species: Eld Inlet fall chum; Puget Sound/Strait of Georgia coho; Puget Sound fall chinook; native Puget Sound winter steelhead; and anadromous coastal cutthroat trout.
