Open House to Kick Off Recreation Planning for Teanaway Community Forest

Washington Department of Natural Resources

OLYMPIA – The public is invited to share ideas about the future of recreation in the Teanaway Community Forest at an open house on Tuesday, Oct. 25, in Cle Elum. The Washington departments of Natural Resources (DNR) and Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) are developing a recreation plan with significant input from the public and a community-based advisory committee. The open house will provide an introduction to the planning process, which was outlined in the agencies’ 2015 management plan for the 50,241-acre forest, located in the Yakima River Basin headwaters. The management plan is available at http://file.dnr.wa.gov/publications/em_tcf_managementplan.pdf.
