|SHADOW Lake Nature Preserve is pleased to introduce our 2022 – 2025 Strategic Plan—Branching Out! |
The lush forests and abundant water of Shadow Lake area are home to an array of local wildlife, including many species of birds, amphibians, and mammals. This area is also home to one of the most unique habitats found in Washington State—a 10,000-year-old peat bog. With all the beauty, wonder, and value found in this special place, it continues to be threatened by fragmentation and degradation due to human activities.
For more than 20 years, SHADOW Lake Nature Preserve has worked to protect the natural areas surrounding Shadow Lake, with emphasis placed on restoring wildlife corridors and the functioning of Shadow Lake Bog. Our work quickly expanded with the realization that the land we care for is only truly protected when everyone in our community understands the value and is empowered to care for our shared environment.
