Chelan County, the Chelan Douglas Land Trust, and the Trust for Public Land is hosting a meeting on Saturday, April 11th at 10:00 am for local residents of the Upper Wenatchee Watershed at the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club to discuss forest land management priorities in the Nason Creek watershed. The catalyst for this effort is the potential transition of about 38,000 acres of forested land recently sold by Longview Fibre to Weyerhaeuser. Much of the forested land is adjacent to Forest Service lands.  The reason this meeting is of interest to me is that they are looking at Weyerhaeuser Land and specifically the land upon which Scottish Lakes High Camp is located. I think this has some interesting potential for the High Camp Community. The topics for discussion include:

  • What do you value most about area lands and waters?
  • What are the biggest threats to those values?
  • Are there specific places that are most important to you and your community?
  • How can land use and management affect your community, both positively and negatively?

I plan to attend this meeting and hope that local residents will be there also. In addition, I am interested in feedback from the High Camp Community on the above questions…even though they may not be locals. Please email me with input to :  hicamp@scottishlakes.com. I would appreciate the broader perspective it would provide me when I attend this meeting. As always I thank the High Camp Community for their love and support of Scottish Lakes!
