Day Creek Forest Property

Property Description

75-acres of productive salmon habitat and prime forestland are permanently safeguarded as part of a larger effort to protect the Day Creek watershed.  The acquisition of the Day Creek Forest Conservation Area was made possible through funding from Washington State’s Recreation and Conservation Office - Salmon Recovery Board and with support from the Skagit Watershed Council and Seattle City Light.

Day Creek is an important tributary for Skagit River salmon recovery efforts.  The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife has documented numerous species of salmon spawning, rearing or migrating through this stretch of creek and the property was identified as a priority by the Skagit Watershed Council. The forested area also provides high quality habitat for wildlife, as well as shade and soil erosion protection for Day Creek.

Access: Passive recreation and fishing are permitted; this area is difficult to access - please contact Skagit Land Trust office prior to visiting for directions.
