maloney creek forest
The Maloney Forest abounds in conifers, including 200 year, old-growth timber towering majestically above nearly 50 acres of the property. The remainder is home to mature trees 50 to 70 years old. These valuable trees provide critical habitat and habitat connectivity for more than 50 species of animals including iconic species like the northern spotted owl, marbled murrelet, bull trout, grizzly bear, Canada lynx and gray wolf. The crystalline waters flowing off the slopes feed the South Fork of the Skykomish River, critical habitat for endangered salmon.
