Nelson Creek Stewardship Project

In 2006 Columbia Land Trust (CLT), a not for profit conservation organization, approached the Willapa Hills Audubon Society (WHAS) to partner on the restoration and stewardship of the Nelson Creek property.  The property is 180 acres (increased to 200 acres in 2008) located near Cathlamet, WA in Wahkiakum County.  It is adjacent, across Highway 4, from the Julia Butler Hansen Columbia white-tailed deer Wildlife Refuge.
