An available piece of land in Okanogan County has been aquired by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The purchase of 339 acres, located east of Riverside near McLoughlin Falls in the Sinlahekin Wildlife area, was approved by WDFW for habitat conservation. While recreational opportunities on the land for fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing will be made available, the primary driver of the acquisition was the protection of the existing shrub steppe, and riparian habitats that include mule deer, Chinook salmon, steelhead, and pacific lamprey. WDFW's guardianship over the land will also conserve migratory routes for wildlife in the Cascade and Kettle River Mountain ranges. Value of the property shows and appraised value of $1,350,000.
