Mountain views, beautiful rivers, and an active local community help make Leavenworth a great place to live. As the gateway to the Cascade Mountains, the Leavenworth area also attracts tourists, hikers, anglers, and climbers each year. Sharing this space with residents and visitors is abundant wildlife, from black bears and elk to salmon. The Land Trust’s work in this region focuses on preserving natural areas for humans and wildlife alike. Our riparian restoration and riverfront protection means cold, clean water for salmon and people. Our forest protection means wildlife can access needed migration corridors and people can access sustainable recreation. Land Trust collaboration with local landowners, businesses, and other partners means together we can preserve the special character of Leavenworth for generations to come.
