We’re celebrating a great success for wildlife on the Duckabush River this winter! Local sculptor Mark Fissler and his family worked with Jefferson Land Trust and our partners to protect 15 acres of their longtime family land in the middle reaches of the Duckabush River as a permanent wildlife preserve.
A big shout out to the Department of Corrections Mission Creek Corrections Center for Women work crew for their dedicated stewardship work on the Duckabush.
Fifteen acres nestled between our five-acre Duckabush Oxbow Preserve and our 22-acre Duckabush Wetlands Preserve have now been permanently protected as wildlife habitat, thanks to funding through the Salmon Recovery Funding Board and the Jefferson Land Trust volunteers, donors, and supporters who care about nurturing a landscape that sustains all living things.
This winter, we had additional success for the future of wildlife along the Duckabush River with the protection of a 22-acre property, now officially known as Duckabush Wetlands Preserve.
