If introducing people to the joys of being outside sounds worth your time, consider leading a snowshoe tour with Wenatchee River Institute at the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery!

Planning on coming to the Annual Dinner and want to help out? Bring a savory or sweet appetizer for us to share during the appetizer hour from 6-7 pm. 

We've been sharing food before the main course since the dinner began - it's just one more way we try to create community. 

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.

Join us on Saturday, June 8th from 9 AM - 1:00 PM for brush removal and possibly some restoration plant monitoring at Horse Lake Reserve. This could involve hiking less than 1 mile and using hand tools such as loppers and hand saws along the way. 

Registration for this annual event opens February 19th
