Members of the state Board of Natural Resources on Tuesday formally approved the long-term management plan for the Teanaway Community Forest lands north of Cle Elum, according to a news release.

The unanimous board decision focused on the plan developed by a 20-member advisory committee in the past 18 months. The Teanaway Community Forest Management Plan guides the collaborative management of the 50,242-acre forest by the state Department of Natural Resources and the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

State funds purchased the land in fall 2013 from a private forest property owner. The goal, in the nearly $100 million purchase, was to protect, preserve and improve the ecosystem on property at the headwaters of the Yakima River system, a first step in the 30-year, $4 billion Yakima River basin integrated plan.
