Canoe found on North Shore

 A yellowish We-no-nah canoe has been found on the beach at 17805 North Shore Drive. If yours go there and retrieve it.

 Come and join us for a FREE family sledding day at Camp Zanika this Saturday, February 17th, from 11AM to 4PM.

We will have sledding ( bring your own sled), build a snowman, snow forts, a snow shoe trek to Hidden Lake and enjoy hot cocoa and a wonderful fire both inside and outside. In case of low snow conditions  we have craft activities also and a hike to hidden lake.

There is also the option to stay overnight at camp! It is free for Camp Fire Club members to spend the night, and only $20 per person or $30 per family of four and that includes dinner and breakfast the next morning.

Nason Ridge Winter Update

We thought we would take just a moment of your time to give you an update on the Save Nason Ridge Project. Weyerhaeuser has agreed to suspend logging and road building while a purchase agreement is being negotiated with the Chelan Douglas Land Trust and Western Rivers Conservancy (WRC). WRC has successfully negotiated a number of purchase agreements with Weyerhaeuser and we are very happy to be teaming with them on this project. We hope to have an agreement to purchase the Nason Ridge property, including the area used for cross-country skiing along the ridge and down towards Coles Corner, in the first half of 2018. Continuing to gather public support is the most important contribution you can make at this time, please continue to circulate our online petition, here is a link you can email to friends or post on social media:

The cross-country ski trails above Nason Creek and up the backside of Nason Ridge are all groomed and the snowshoe trail up Nason Ridge is open. Please come enjoy this wonderful winter resource. To check ski trail grooming status see the Lake Wenatchee XC Grooming Status page.

Thank you for your continued support.
