Three Rivers Preserve

Three Rivers

Near the Skagit-Whatcom County line, Three Rivers Preserve covers a 37-acre gently sloping parcel, crossed by three minor drainage ravines and seasonal streams. Alder, cedar, salmonberry and other native undergrowth create a forested area.

The preserve lies adjacent to ongoing logging and development.  Special attention has been given to identify and post the known boundary lines to reduce unauthorized ATV traffic. The stable site continues to support a thriving deciduous forest capable of naturally filtering water and offering a safe haven for wildlife.

Three Rivers Preserve is prominently located in Basin 3 where, aside from some timber management and harvest, little conservation or land protection exists. This Preserve will function as a model and foundation for future preservation in the area.
