Illabot Creek Property

Property Description

In December of 2014, Skagit Land Trust, working with private landowners Ken and Velma Perrigoue, protected more than 2,000 feet of critical salmon habitat along the federally-designated Wild & Scenic Illabot Creek, outside of Rockport, WA.  Skagit Land Trust, The Washington State Salmon Recovery Funding Board,  Skagit County, and the Washington State Department of Ecology provided funding for this project.  This voluntary partnership successfully protected the river shoreline and riperian area for salmon habitat while conserving the upper portions of the property as a working ranch. 

Read the February 1, 2015 Skagit Valley Herald article about this conservation partnership success. 

This is a private property, not open to the public.
