2004 Projects

In 2004, 9 acres were approved for addition to the Quimper Wildlife Corridor - a conservation project initiated by the Jefferson Land Trust in 1997. The Corridor consists of a series of key forested and wetland parcel between the Middlepoint Land Conservancy easement and Fort Worden State Park that provide important wildlife habitat as well as storm water storage, filtration and treatment.
