LAKE WENATCHEE — The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust announced Tuesday it's secured a new 40-acre parcel on the White River watershed, helping complete a network of floodplain and riverfront land held for conservation.

The $160,000 purchase will help maintain habitat and improve public access on the Lower White River where it empties into Lake Wenatchee.
