A recreation planning committee representing various recreational users and landowners has been working for more than a year with a DNR and WDFW project team to identify recreational options in the planning area. Attendees at the October meetings will learn about the progress that has been made on these efforts and will have the opportunity to review and comment on two options for recreational development.

The 230,000-acre recreation area covers portions of Kittitas and Chelan counties and includes the Naneum Ridge State Forest managed by DNR. It also includes the Colockum Wildlife Area and the Quilomene and Whiskey Dick units of the L.T. Murray Wildlife Area, managed by WDFW. The area is within 30 minutes of both Wenatchee and Ellensburg and extends from the eastern boundary of the Wenatchee National Forest to the Columbia River.
