Seaside habitat reserve just got a little bigger

In late November 2017, North Coast Land Conservancy closed on a 3-acre addition to what was an 80-acre habitat reserve at Thompson Creek and Stanley Marsh, on the east side of Seaside. This patch of steep, forested hillside helps buffer the Thompson Creek from Lewis and Clark Road. A small creek runs through the property and down to Thompson Creek.

Thompson Creek consistently sees some of the largest numbers of spawning coho in the entire Neawanna Creek system. This habitat reserve, originally conserved in 2006, includes a stretch of Thompson Creek and the riverside wetlands and uplands that border the creek. It also includes Thompson Falls, adjacent upland forest, and a historic tidally influenced floodplain once filled and converted to pasture and now part of the Necanicum Estuary system.
