Cle Elum Ridge land to be conserved

A large portion of the Cle Elum Ridge will be conserved as part of a purchase by the U.S. Forest Service. The 9,700-acre project is the culmination of 20 years of conservation to expand the adjacent Teanaway Community Forest, connecting the last piece in a corridor of protected lands. Once acquired, the property will be managed by the Washington Department of Natural Resources under a community-backed Forest Management Plan for enhancing water supply, expanding recreation, maintaining forestry, and conserving habitat. The purchase was made possible by $15.3 million in Forest Service funding and $5.7 million in state money.
