On October 1, 2013, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources purchased a 50,272-acre property to create Washington’s first state-managed Community Forest. The Teanaway Community Forest is situated at the headwaters of the Yakima Basin watershed and is a key component of the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan.

DNR will collaboratively manage the forest with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, with significant public input from a community-based advisory committee.

So, what exactly is a Community Forest? Will there still be recreation access? Will I need a Discover Pass?
