In 2010, the Salmon Creek Riparian Acquisition project, sponsored by Jefferson Land Trust, was awarded $63,394 towards the permanent protection of 160 acres of vacant land off of West Uncas Road near the head of Discovery Bay.
Ultimately, the landowner chose not to sell any property interests. The project was discontinued and unspent project funds were made available to new projects. Also in 2010, the Tamanowas Rock and Nicholson Short Plat project received $200,000 over 2 years towards the permanent protection of 129 acres of vacant land near Anderson Lake State Park. The property is unique geologically and contains Tamanowas Rock, a site of spiritual significance, as well as valuable habitat for wildlife including elk and eagles.
