Wenatchee Foothills

Join us at Horse Lake Reserve for common invasive and native grass identification, followed by hand-pulling invasive weeds around our restoration grass seedlings. There's lots to learn, and our native basin wildrye, Idaho fescue and bluebunch wheatgrass need your help to survive!

What do scentless mayweed, yellow star thistle, and jointed goatgrass all have in common?  All are noxious weeds we don’t want to find in our Wenatchee Foothills!  Chelan-Douglas Land Trust (CDLT) has teamed up with Chelan County Weed Board to offer a noxious weed identification training for the community.

Are you looking for a hands-on way to positively impact our lands in just two hours? Do you like to get outside in the company of other like-minded folks? Consider signing up to join the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust for our Weed Warrior knapweed pulls this spring.

Want to improve the success of our native grass restoration? Want to fit in an upper body workout before your hike or bike ride? Stop by for as long as you want to help CDLT staff hoe weeds in the restoration area near the lower barn at Horse Lake Reserve. 

To preserve native plant habitat and be a good neighbor, CDLT staff are spraying weeds at Horse Lake Reserve and on Balsamroot Trail this spring. All herbicides are applied with a blue dye. Click on the blue link for the product label.

Weed spraying is subject to change due to weather and other variables.

The Land Trust is excited to announce an effort to gather input from past, present, and future visitors to Saddle Rock through a survey. This survey and other opportunities for people to provide input on trails and recreation at Saddle Rock will help guide land managers to develop and implement a trails plan for the area.

Protection of this property is the culmination of years of effort to protect a key piece of Wenatchee's gorgeous natural backdrop. As with some other Foothills properties, Lower Castle Rock is owned by the City of Wenatchee with a permanent conservation agreement with the Land Trust. Open during daylight hours.
