Mountain Home Ridge

Help monitor two populations of Wenatchee Mountains Checker-mallow (Sidalcea oregana var. calva), a native plant with a very limited natural range. In 2014, CDLT received funding from the USFW to establish new populations of this plant by planting of nursery-grown seedlings at Mountain Home. Annually, CDLT monitors the plants.  

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. 

Explore wildflowers, birds, animal tracks, geology and more on this evening walk at our Mountain Home Property above Leavenworth. This trip will be led by CDLT Conservation Fellow Susan Ballinger, who makes monthly visits to Mountain Home to record bird use. Beautiful views, wildlife, and the evening light – don’t miss this trip!

Managing for Forest Health on Mountain Home Preserve
  
Land Trust property closed for forest thinning operation

The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust will temporarily close its Mountain Home Preserve to the public beginning October 23rd. Thirty acres of CDLT’s 170-acre property on Mountain Home Road above Leavenworth will be thinned to improve its health and resilience to drought, bark beetle attack, and wildfire.
