Shape New Trails in the Central Cascades
The Nature Conservancy made news with a historic land purchase preserving 47,921 acres of land near Cle Elum. You have the chance to shape the future of the land.
Last October, The Nature Conservancy made news with a historic land purchase across the outdoor recreation and conservation community. The Central Cascades Project preserved 47,921 acres of land along I-90 near Cle Elum, with the dual goals of conserving the ecologically rich area and providing recreational access.
Now, the group still needs help from hikers to help decide how this scenic landscape will be used.
You can help shape the future of the land by attending a meeting June 16 (details below). Given the area's close proximity to Washington's largest population center, this area has the potential to be an extension of the increasingly popular I-90 corridor and provide new hiking opportunities.
Sharing the land
Hikers aren't the only outdoors enthusiasts who want access to the area -- mountain bikers, horseback riders and motorized users also hope to enjoy this space. The Nature Conservancy needs to hear from trail users regarding the types of trails you would like to see, so take advantage of this opportunity to help shape how the land is used.
Attend the event:
When: June 16th from 6:30 to 8:00pm
Where: REI Flagship Store, 222 Yale Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109
