Grantee:  American Rivers

Result: 14 river miles protected

In December 2014, Congress designated 14.3 miles of Illabot Creek as a national Wild and Scenic River. American Rivers helped secure the highest protection possible for Illabot Creek, nearly 25 years after the Forest Service recommended protections for this tributary of the Skagit River in the North Cascades. Due to the strong salmon presence, Illabot Creek supports one of the largest wintering bald eagle populations in the lower 48.
