Dry Gulch LLC, an offshoot of Appleatchee Riders, partnered with the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust to develop a conservation easement on 685 acres comprised of shrub-steppe and native bunchgrass, reclaimed mining lands, winter wheat fields, and retired grazing pastures.
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.
The Jacobson family left a permanent legacy to the Wenatchee community when it donated 35 acres of prime shrub-steppe habitat in the Wenatchee Foothills to the Land Trust.
Working together, we accomplished the 100-year community goal of acquiring and protecting Saddle Rock forever.
