Shoreline Habitat Discovery Point
Retreating glaciers, wind, waves, and the watershed formed Fidalgo Bay over millennia. The bay is home to many important marine and shoreline plants and animals. They all depend on clean water, a healthy environment, and critical habitat features of the shoreline. Fidalgo Bay has been significantly altered by human actions - diking along highway 20, shoreline fill, railroad bridges, and industrial activities - since settlers arrived in the late 1800s.
