DESCRIPTION
CDLT acquired this 6.45 acre parcel with 1,350 feet of frontage on Icicle Creek. Title is held by the Washington State Department iof Fish & Wildlife, whcih will manage the property for salmon habitat conservation and foot only access for anglers and other non-commercial recreationalists. The property is 90% witin the floodplain of Lower Icicle Creek, a tributary to Wenatchee River. This is the first phase of three anticipated with the Fromm family, who have owned property along Icicle Creek for over a hundred years and has the largest private holdings on Icicle Creek.

The Upper Columbia Recovery Plan states that "the highest priority for protecting biological productivity should be to allow unrestricted stream channel migration, complexity, and flood plain function. The principal means to meet this objective is to protect riparian habitat in Category 1 and 2 subwatersheds." Icicle Creek is a Category 2 Watershed, a Minor Spawning Area for spring Chinook salmon, a Major Spawning Area for steelhead, and a Core Area for bull trout. The Recovery Plan also sets the Tier 3 Strategy for Icicle Creek to "protect existing riparian habitat and channel migration and floodplain function" and recommends "acquire conservation easements where appropriate from Leavenworth Hatchery to the mouth." This project is in that reach and is an important corridor for migration, adult holding, juvenile rearing, and overwintering.
