The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest is a large and diverse area, encompassing over 4-million acres along the east slopes of the Cascade Range in Washington. For general information about the forest click here.
Since 2012, a portion of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest that encompasses the Pasayten Wilderness and stretches almost all the way to Winthrop, Washington, has been part of the National Forest Foundation’s (NFF) Treasured Landscapes. In this Majestic Methow area, the NFF, the U.S. Forest Service, individuals and corporate partners, and local conservation organizations are investing more than $2 million in important restoration work. The NFF’s Majestic Methow projects were developed during community meetings in the Methow Valley. Here is a brief description of our current list.
