Capitol Land Trust’s Puget Sound Recovery Proposal Ranks #1 in South Puget Sound!
Capitol Land Trust’s proposal to protect and restore habitat on Henderson Inlet recently ranked 1st in South Sound for the Puget Sound Partnership’s “Near Term Action” habitat list! Projects included on this list are the highest-priority scientifically informed and technically feasible actions that will be used to develop a road map for recovery of Puget Sound over the next several years.
Capitol Land Trust’s project ranked 11th overall in Puget Sound, out of 205 habitat recovery proposals. The project will protect 105 acres of biologically-sensitive estuary, marine shoreline, riparian* and forested habitat along the shoreline of Henderson Inlet in Thurston County, close to the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater urban core.
The ranked lists of priority Puget Sound recovery projects will now be reviewed by both the public and additional scientific and technical experts, prior to finalization in June 2016 as part of the 2016/2017 Action Agenda for Puget Sound recovery.
