The importance of this property not only to nature and the animals, but to the community and youth, their education, and their future as well.  HOW appreciates all the support from our neighbors and newly found friends and businesses.

The National Audubon Society spoke to the impact of human settlement; “30,000 acres of wildlife habitat is lost in Washington State each year to urban development.”


Many factors have contributed to wildlife population decline in Washington:

Habitat destruction

Wetland drainage


Introduction of alien species
