Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve was established in 1978 to preserve and protect a rural community on Whidbey Island. The historical landscape of the reserve today looks much like it did a century ago - a mosaic of farms, forests, and century old buildings and homes. The site encompasses 25 square miles (17,400 acres) and includes federal, state, county, and private property. The Reserve commemorates exploration of Puget Sound by Captain Vancouver in 1792, settlement of the area by Col. Isaac Ebey, and early active settlement in the 1850's.

The Reserve is located in the western hemlock forest zone of western Washington. The unique climate, rainshadow effect of the Olympic mountains (19 inches of rain annually), productive agricultural soils, maritime influence, and geologic features result in an unusual diversity of plant and animal species, communities, and habitats. The diverse native flora ranges from small, scattered stands of old-growth Douglas-fir forest, flat-leafed cactus, and miles of hedgerows to dense rhododendron thickets, salt marsh communities and a small area of pristine prairie. Numerous populations of invasive exotic flora also exist within the Reserve.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
