Green Road Marsh Conservation area comprises of nearly 42 acres of wetlands that are part of a larger wetland system including the south side of Thomas Creek. Purchased in February 1997, Skagit Land Trust began restoration work and the development of ponds to esablish year-round waterfowl habitat. The marsh also provides habitat for eagles and falcons, amphibians and other wildlife. Green Road Marsh Conservation Area 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.
