This property protects a portion of the rich riparian ecosystem in the Heart of the Fraser – an area that is increasingly threatened with development and habitat loss.
The Heart of the Fraser is a marvelous stretch of the river. This area is prime spawning habitat for salmon and White Sturgeon and serves as a nursery for millions of baby salmon every year. The Nature Trust has conserved almost 700 acres in this area beginning with the Chehalis Conservancy in 1978 and most recently adding our first Nicomen Slough property in 2019.
