This unit is located upstream of Spencer Island and between the towns of Everett and Snohomish. It is 1,237 acres in size and consists of approximately 417 acres of forested swamp, and 820 acres of grassland that was purchased in 2008. The forested portion was logged in the 1890ís and has become reforested naturally into one of the few remaining sitka spruce swamps in the Snohomish River estuary. The grassland portion is vegetated largely by reed canarygrass and baltic rush, and is divided by the forks of Deadwater slough which span the properties length, north to south. Recreational access for this unit is in the planning phase.
