Community Forests are working landscapes where communities partner with land managers to preserve the forest and uses they love. The Teanaway Community Forest demonstrates how conservation, sustainable forestry and community partnership goals can be achieved. This beautiful 50,241-acre landscape lies at the headwaters of the Yakima Basin watershed. The state purchased the land in 2013 with funding provided by the Legislature and established Washington's first state-owned community forest. It is managed by the Dept. of Natural Resources, the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, and an Advisory Committee of local community members. The forest contains nearly 400 miles of free-flowing streams and prime habitat for fish and wildlife. It has a history of grazing and timber harvests and offers unique recreation opportunities. Join DNR and their partners to restore the landscape and maintain recreation amenities for everyone to enjoy.
