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.

We have permanently protected over 26,600 acres of our region's most important natural areas, primarily in Chelan and Douglas counties.

How to Get Involved

Together, we can protect the natural areas that enrich our lives and ensure that future generations will have open space and clean, healthy rivers. Get involved!
