Meetings on Proposed Dewatto Conservation Area Set

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold two public meetings on a proposed Natural Resources Conservation Area (NRCA) in the Hood Canal area.
The proposed Dewatto Natural Resources Conservation Area (NRCA) seeks protection for approximately five miles of Hood Canal shoreline, including Dewatto Bay and Little Dewatto Bay. The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR), along with our partners at the Trust for Public Land, Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group, and Great Peninsula Conservancy, are proposing a 1,700 acre NRCA to ensure conservation of important Hood Canal features for enjoyment by future generations. Features include lowland forests, high-functioning riparian areas, and vital nearshore and estuary habitat for fish and wildlife.
