Habitat Improvements Along the Touchet River

The NWTF, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and Pheasants Forever partnered for a habitat improvement project on private lands along the Touchet River, part of NWTF’s Western Wildlands Focal Region. 

These private lands are part of WDFW’s “Feel Free to Hunt” access program, a program making private lands more accessible to the public for hunting.

In addition to creating better forage and brood-rearing habitat for wild turkeys, the project improved streamside habitat for salmonids and bull trout and controlled weeds on 80 acres using local volunteers from the NWTF and Pheasants Forever.   

The total cost of the project was $4,302, and the NWTF contributed $1,500.
