What We Do - Favorite Places Protected Forever

The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust works cooperatively with private landowners and local communities to ensure that we will be able to enjoy the benefit of the lands and waters we all love for years to come. Our approach is successful because it is collaborative, voluntary, and incentive-based.

Our work includes land protection projects, education and outreach, stewardship, trails, and landowner services.

Our Focus:

Healthy Habitat

Clean, abundant water and healthy habitat are vital for fish, wildlife and people. Our focus is to permanently protect the natural functions and scenic beauty of our region's highest priority rivers, streams and natural areas.

Quality of Life

A healthy, attractive environment strengthens our economy and improves our quality of life. Good planning now can harmonize conservation, recreation and development, so that we can preserve our region's special places for future generations.

Connecting People to Nature

Trails, paths and natural areas close to where we live connect us to our landscape. Providing appropriate public access to natural areas close to home helps the next generation to develop a strong land ethic and a culture of conservation.
