Upper Wenatchee Pilot Project
In 2017, the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest (OWNF) received approximately $1.6 million dollars for collaborative restoration and hazardous fuels reduction work otherwise known as the Chelan Pilot. One effort within this larger Pilot is the Upper Wenatchee Restoration Project covering 75,000 acres near Plain, WA.
The primary focus of the project is to restore forest health and resiliency by reestablishing forest structure, returning fire to the landscape, improving wildlife habitat, and improving watershed function.
