Wenatchee Foothills

Assist with re-taking photos at 4 permanent photo points along a 0.5 mile stretch of the Balsamroot Trail, that burned in the 2015 Lower Sleepy Hollow Wildfire. 

Many dates from late April to July. Controlling over 20 species of noxious weeds is one of our toughest stewardship duties. Timing of weed control treatments depends on stage of plant growth and favorable weather conditions so we keep a flexible schedule.

Enjoy wildflower season and great views at the Horse Lake Reserve while helping to remove hazardous fencing. Work involves cutting brush that has grown through the fences, removing and rolling rusty barbed wire, and pulling out fence posts. Wear sturdy shoes, tough clothing, and leather gloves.

WENATCHEE — Each year, the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust asks volunteers to spend a few hours shoveling and raking the thin dirt strips that zigzag through the Wenatchee foothills. It’s simple but important work that improves trail health, and the time to do it is in the spring when soils are malleable.

Foothills Trails News:

RAIN means muddy trails... and roads. We're scheduled to get between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch in the next 24 hours.

Consultants for the City of Wenatchee will be surveying and field testing at Saddle Rock Park the week of April 8th, 2019.

Land Trust, Chelan PUD and partners hope for April 5 opening depending on conditions  

Join us on Thursday, May 2nd from 3-6 PM for trail maintenance at Horse Lake Reserve. We will tackle trail maintenance on the upper Horse Lake trails that will likely be under patches of snow or too muddy to work on during earlier volunteer trail events.

Join us on Thursday, April 25th from 3-6 PM for trail maintenance at Horse Lake Reserve to prepare for the 6th Annual Horse Lake Trail Run. We will split up into small groups to do brushing and hazard reduction along the route.

Join us on Saturday, April 6th for Sage Hills trail maintenance. We will meet at 9:00 am at the end of the pavement on Horse Lake Rd.
