The Methow Conservancy used a grant to buy a conservation easement on 1,028 acres of undeveloped shrub-steppe and wetlands in the Methow watershed within Okanogan County.

The project protects priority habitat, provides habitat linkages to existing protected land, conserves at-risk species, and maintains seasonal wildlife movement corridors. Priority species supported include gray wolves, mule deer, sharp-tailed grouse, peregrine falcon, and Brewer’s sparrows, among other species.
