The streams provide connectivity from the Cascade River to upstream habitat for native aquatic species, especially salmon and steelhead. The streams also provide these aquatic species with spawning habitat. Salmonids such as Chinook Salmon and Bulltrout utilize the river and the property is also adjacent to identified habitat for the Northern Spotted Owl and Marbled Murrelet. 

 The streams and riparian forest in Cascade River Trezise provide habitat for a variety of wildlife species.
