WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We’re just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit run on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this website this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Of course, time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone.

Please take 2 minutes to chip in $9.

Thank you and happy hiking!

Nestled in the City of Yelm, Cochrane Memorial Park offers quiet paths, a catch and release fishing pond, a covered picnic area and an educational interpretive center.

Visitors can expect to have a nice place to rest and enjoy peace and quiet, while enjoying an interesting bit of the City of Yelm's infrastructure.

The water reclamation is a central part of the city's water plan; all the water here is reclaimed water and then filtered back into the ground to recharge the aquifer.
