Many ways to give back in the Teanaway

Two or three years isn’t long in the life of a tree, but the next several years are likely to be important to a full forest of trees. And not only trees, but the wildlife, people, and entire ecosystems found in the Teanaway Community Forest, too.

If you’re willing to dedicate your time to this landscape by attending monthly or quarterly meetings for the next two or three years, we encourage you to apply to be an advisory committee member. You’d be giving us input on the implementation of a pending forest management plan and working with a diverse array of stakeholders on how to best provide recreation opportunities. Your challenge would be to advise us on how to reflect the varied priorities of the broad cross-section of Washingtonians who cherish and value the Teanaway.Featured image

If this seems like the kind of worthwhile challenge you’d be up for, we invite you to apply by the June 10 deadline.

Another volunteer opportunity is the upcoming Teanaway Campground work party, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on June 3 and 4. Come out and help clean up, build and install picnic tables, and install fire rings so that our three area campgrounds are ready for summer visitors. These volunteer hours also count towards earning a free Discover Pass. RSVP to Stephanie Margheim at 509-925-0984 or
