Reading Forest Health on Nason Ridge

9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Learning to read the forest is an acquired skill. Come learn from an expert! Join forest health specialist Connie Mehmel on a hike along Nason Ridge and learn about the interactions of trees, understory plants, insects and diseases in this beautiful and diverse forest.

The Nason Ridge property was recently purchased from a timber company for its conservation value. The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust is now working with Western Rivers Conservancy, which stepped up and purchased the property in June, to identify the preferred permanent owner of this important forest land. One possible future for this land is as a community forest, which means the community would develop its management plan. Come learn more about this special place.

RSVPs required. Please RSVP online or by contacting Hillary ( or 509 667-9708). This trip is limited to 12 people. 9:00 is the meeting time for Leavenworth, Lake Wenatchee residents can meet us at the trailhead at 9:45. Participants will receive an email with more information before the hike.
