Wildlife Areas
Snoqualmie Wildlife Area
Cherry Valley Unit
The Cherry Valley unit encompasses 386 acres of forest and grassland in the Snoqualmie River floodplain, one mile north of Duvall. This unit consists of about 130 acres of deciduous and coniferous forest, 100 acres of wetlands and 30 acres of uplands. The unit also includes some farm fields, grass meadows, streams and hedgerows. The Cherry Valley unit is located on one of the lowest points in the Snoqualmie River valley, so flooding is common from mid-November to April. The department has implemented projects to restore salmon populations in the two creeks that flow through the unit.

Recreation on this unit includes pheasant and waterfowl hunting, recreational dog training, and wildlife and bird viewing.

WDFW purchased the unit property with grant funds from the National Park Service's Land and Water Conservation fund and bonds from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO).
