Badger Gulch Natural Area Preserve

Features Protected: Idaho fescue-houndstongue hawkweed plant community, Oregon white oak – ponderosa pine woodland, white alder riparian woodland, and beaked cryptantha.

Ecoregion: Columbia Plateau   (Klickitat County)

Site Description
Located in a steep, narrow canyon, this 180 acre preserve protects excellent examples of the native grasslands and oak - pine savannas found in south-central Washington, as well as intact riparian vegetation along a seasonal creek. The site is rich in bird fauna, supporting a number of declining species such as the ash-throated flycatcher, Lewis’ woodpecker, and Vaux’s swift.  The rocky slopes above the creek also contain populations of beaked cryptantha, a state-listed sensitive plant species.
