Green Road Marsh Property

Property Description

Nearly 42 acres of wetlands, part of a larger wetland system including the south side of Thomas Creek, make up the Green Road Marsh. Purchased in February 1997, Skagit Land Trust began restoration work and the development of ponds for year-round waterfowl habitat. The marsh also provides habitat for eagles and falcons, amphibians and other wildlife. Green Road Marsh plays a very important role in protecting water resources and in maintaining a healthy habitat for salmon in streams such as Thomas Creek. During the 2014-2015 restoration season nearly 2000 trees were planted along with other area improvements. Watch this property undergo many exciting changes well into the future.

Things to do here: Excellent birding spot with migratory waterfowl and bald eagles. You can also catch a chorus of Pacific tree frogs, especially in spring.

Access

Driving directions: From I-5 North take exit 232 for Cook Rd towards Sedro-Woolley. Turn right at Cook Rd on bottom of ramp.  Turn left at Green Rd.  Drive to end of road and property is on the right just before Kelleher Rd intersects.
