2009 Projects


In 2009, the Quimper Wildlife Corridor, Tarboo Wildlife Preserve East Side Addition and Brown Dairy were awarded funding. The 2009 Quimper Wildlife Corridor Project received $137,500 towards the City of Port Townsend's purchase of approximately five acres of habitat in an area of particular importance to bird life and area residents.

The commissioners also granted $82,500 towards the purchase of a conservation easement on the 50-acre Brown Dairy, a historic farm near the Chimacum intersection. Both sums include $5,000 for operations and maintenance of the acquisitions over the next 10 years. The Tarboo Wildlife Preserve East Side Addition was also granted $50,000 for the fee-simple acquisition of 10-acres contiguous with existing protected areas in the Tarboo Valley.
