Building off a previously protected and adjacent forested wetland property, 51 acres are now permanently protected in the upper watershed of Glendale Creek. The mosaic of open water, forested and emergent wetlands, upland meadow, and forest protects water quality in Glendale Creek, one of only three salmon-bearing streams in Island County. The new preserve provides important wildlife habitat used by an abundance of species found here, including amphibians and water-dependent birds.
