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.
The Okanogan-Wenatchee N.F. is experiencing uncharacteristically severe fires, insect infestations, disease epidemics, habitat loss and hydrologic events causing massive erosion. Climate change will exacerbate these threats in the near future. Scientists agree active, landscape-scale restoration is needed if the forest is to become resilient to these threats.
