Our Land, Our Water, Our Future

It’s beautiful here. But our lakes, rivers, meadows, and foothills are more than just scenery — they’re also a valuable resource, providing the area with quality water, recreation, and a vital connection to nature. The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust works with private landowners, businesses, and local communities to ensure that we will be able to enjoy the benefit of our cherished natural areas for years to come.

Learn about trails in our area, whether you hike, bike, run or ride a horse. Trails provide entry into the special places that make our area so spectacular - places that provide space for wildlife to live and humans to visit.

Our Work

We have permanently protected over 7,000 acres of our region's most important natural areas, primarily in Chelan and Douglas counties.

Together, we can protect the natural areas that enrich our lives and ensure that future generations will have open space and clean, healthy rivers. There are many ways you can get involved and support the work of the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust.

Foothills seasonal trails closure

Foothills seasonal trails closure begins Dec. 1st

It’s time for us to make room in the foothills for wildlife and shift our recreation to the many alternative areas we have available to us.

NEW FOR THIS YEAR:  Dry Gulch Preserve will be open on the main road ONLY for winter access.
