The Grayland Property is an approximately 1,750-acre property under private ownership that Ducks Unlimited (DU) and WA Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDWF) are seeking to purchase and protect into public ownership as a new Wildlife Area. DU and WDFW are currently in negotiations with the current landowner to purchase the property, with a closing date by 12/31/2018. The property contains more than 1,100 acres of diverse wetland habitat including tidally influenced estuarine wetlands. However, at least 6 (named and unnamed) fish barriers have been documented at the Site, including Barriers 991295 and 991301. Upon permanent protection, the property offers significant habitat restoration and enhancement opportunities including Sub-Basin Tier 1 and Tier 2 Concerns such as addressing Total Estuary Habitat Loss, Water Quality, and Tributary Connectivity, as well as other concerns for other sub-basins within WRIA 22. This project proposal is a series of initial Site assessment and inventory activities that will serve as baseline information for restoration planning, habitat management, and public use. DU and WDFW propose to collect physical, biological, and chemical information to aid with development of considerations and constraints for improving access and habitat for salmonids including recovery species such COHO, Fall Chinook, and Winter Steelhead that are documented to use habitats adjacent to the property.
