Teanaway Community Forest Interpretive Events
With greater staff capacity in the Upper Yakima Basin, the Greenway Trust has leaned into organizing and supporting interpretive events in the Teanaway Community Forest.
Much like ranger talks, these free events bring folks out onto the landscape to learn from local experts. Greenway Trust staff work with members of the Teanaway Community Forest (TCF) Advisory Committee and agency partners to schedule, promote, and facilitate 7-10 events per year that range from birding and lessons on wildlife tracking to geology hikes and fly-fishing tips.
Speakers include staff from the Washington State Departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Wildlife, Central Washington University professors, volunteers from Field and Stream and the US Forest Service, and retired biologists who sit on the TCF Advisory Committee. Participants are encouraged to continue their engagement with the Community Forest by volunteering, attending TCF Advisory Committee meetings, and advocating for community forest funding. These interpretive events empower our communities with knowledge about the land that they use and love.
