Located in Redmond, Washington at the confluence of Bear, Evans and Perrigo Creeks, the “Keller Farm Mitigation Bank” is currently in the state bank review and certification process with credits expected to be available by the end of 2018. The Bank will offer wetland, riparian and critical area buffer credits to projects with unavoidable aquatic area impacts within the service area. The bank service area is the Lake Sammamish Watershed and the Lake Washington Watershed, which includes King and Snohomish Counties, and the cities of Redmond, Woodinville, Bothell, Kirkland, Lynnwood, Sammamish, Issaquah and Bellevue (for more information on service area please contact us).
The bank project will restore critical wetland functions and habitat for fish and wildlife, including ESA listed Chinook Salmon. The property is truly one of the last pieces of property of its kind in the Puget Sound Region and will be an asset for project applicants as they seek to determine the most ecologically preferable mitigation solutions for their project in the region.
