Sunnyside-Snake River Wildlife Area
Sunnyside-Snake River Wildlife AreaThe Sunnyside/Snake River Wildlife Area is managed in 18 units that cover more than 20,840 acres in Franklin, Benton, Yakima and Walla Walla counties. Acquisitions began in the late 1940s to protect and enhance habitat and provide public recreation. Some of the lands also help meet mitigation goals for Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) construction projects to address habitat losses for upland wildlife, waterfowl, big game and a variety of non-game species.
