Conservation at the Farm

Oxbow farm is committed to improving the health of our fish and wildlife habitat, while maintaining our ability to farm and work our land. Since 2001, we have been working with Stewardship Partners and others to conserve and restore habitat and educate the community about farming and the environment. Recently, we restored a one-half mile section of river bank along the Snoqualmie River. We have learned to incorporate farming practices that help the native trees and shrubs planted to thrive. We have also been monitoring the health of the oxbow and seeking ways to improve its connection to the river. This summer, we will be restoring a wetland to provide habitat for birds and amphibians.
