This 1,546 acre preserve is a critical bald eagle winter roosting site that complements other areas protected along the Skagit River to provide habitat for bald eagles feeding on salmon carcasses. The preserve has mature forests of Douglas-fir, Pacific silver fir, western hemlock, and western redcedar, which provide the large trees that eagles prefer for protective winter night roosts.
