The 1,960-acre Snoqualmie Wildlife Area consists of six units north of Seattle in Snohomish and King counties in the Snohomish Watershed, including the Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers, which join to form the Snohomish River. Habitats include open water, estuary, various types of wetlands, riparian areas, forested uplands, and seasonally flooded agricultural land. The various units contain a wide range of estuary/wetland and riparian-dependent aquatic and terrestrial species, as well as state sensitive bald eagles and federally threatened anadromous Chinook salmon populations.
Acquisitions occurred between 1964 and 2008, most with a combination of funds from state Recreation and Conservation Office and Duck Stamp Program, and federal Bureau of Outdoor Recreation, to preserve and enhance natural stream drainages and floodplain wetland habitat and to provide opportunities for hunting, dog training and nature observation.
