McIntyre Conservation Easement
Conserved in 2006
- 20 Acres in the McLane Creek Watershed/Delphi Valley.
- The property contains considerable functional forested and wetland habitat. The property’s wetlands, streams and forested areas share direct hydrologic connectivity to McLane Creek, Mud Bay and the lower Eld Inlet watershed. The Property’s forested over-story consists of a diverse mix of Western red cedar, Douglas fir, western hemlock, big leaf maple, grand fir and alder.
- These forested areas provide key habitat connectivity to the McLane Creek Nature Preserve, the Capitol State Forest and the McLane/Eld Inlet watersheds. Permanent protection of this habitat benefits many species that rely on protected areas to hunt, feed, seek shelter and travel.
CLT Strategic Conservation Goal Achieved:
- Conserve wetlands, riparian areas, and associated upland forests.
