Conserving A Corridor Along One of America’s Majestic Rivers

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

A corridor is being conserved along Washington’s Hoh River thanks in part to support from Wildlife Forever. The project, being implemented by the Western Rivers Conservancy, will safeguard one of the best remaining salmon and steelhead streams in the United States from Mount Olympus to the Pacific Ocean. The project will also conserve mature forest along the 30 mile corridor, including habitat for deer, elk, cougar, and waterfowl. The lands were purchased from two principal landowners, Rayonier Timber Company and Green Crow Timber, and will be managed to enhance terrestrial and aquatic habitat throughout the Hoh River watershed.
