After much work, the recreation plan for the Teanaway Community Forest is nearly complete. But it needs your input!
Please join us in crafting a new recreation vision of the Teanaway Community Forest plan by submitting your comments here.
Recreation is a vital consideration for public land management. The Teanaway Community Forest Recreation Plan supports economic benefits to surrounding communities, while enhancing protection for vital resources.
This comment period is only open through 5:00 p.m. on Nov. 7, so please act now.
This plan includes:
•Considerations for numerous recreation types during all seasons — including, but not limited to: hiking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, camping, birding and snowmobiling
•Trail connections to local communities (such as Cle Elum, Roslyn and Ronald) as well as connections for current trails on adjoining National Forest lands.
•New plans in West Fork Teanaway for non-motorized winter recreation, including cross-country ski and snowshoe trails
•Improved trailhead parking, improvements for popular campsites, new informational kiosks and updated restroom facilities to keep up with visitor demand
• Scenic driving routes on forest roads to improve access for all ages and abilities.
This is small sample of what the recreation plan supports. You can view the complete document here.
Thank you for your input on healthy forests and thriving communities.

Imagine waking up one morning and finding your neighborhood had been split in two, separated by a moat that is impossible for you to cross.
We just received fantastic news this week: The Arbor Day Foundation has fully funded our reforestation proposal in the Central Cascades.
Devastating fires continue to burn across our state. But we’ve now had our first look at roughly 1,800 acres of Nature Conservancy land that burned in the Jolly Mountain Fire
