Fire restrictions in place on WDFW lands
The arrival of hot, dry weather, combined with drought conditions, has prompted the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to restrict fires and other activities effective immediately on agency-managed lands in eastern Washington. Learn more >>
During the early 1970s, the construction of State Highway 20, crossing the Swinomish Channel to Fidalgo Island, was built through a portion of Telegraph Slough. This created a shorter inter-tidal slough on the north side of the highway, and a freshwater wetland on the south side. DNR owns the 30-acre isolated wetland and a land use agreement with them allows WDFW to manage it for waterfowl hunting and wildlife observation. A parking area on the south side of Highway 20 provides access.
