OUR MISSION - - to conserve, protect and
restore ecologically significant lands within
the Chehalis River Basin.
Welcome to the Chehalis River Basin Land Trust.
We have a vision -- vibrant local communities rejoicing in abundant clean water, strong fish runs, diverse wildlife and open spaces.
We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving natural lands in the Chehalis River Basin.
These natural areas define western Washington and are the character of our local communities.
The Chehalis River basin
- drains 2,660 square miles of land
- has eight (8) major sub-basins
- each sub-basin has a number of creeks, anywhere from 2 to 12
- sub-basin problems identified in 1996 include: dissolved oxygen,
temperature, fecal coliform and PCB's
- the major population centers are Chehalis, Centralia,
Aberdeen, and Hoquiam
Your support is an investment in the future of these communities and the Chehalis River basin, the second largest river basin in Washington State.
CHANGE IS COMING
There will soon be a new look to this website, thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound. This is one of the goals set by the Board of Directors for 2016. Like all of nature, humans are constantly changing, making lives better.
WE HOPE YOU LIKE THE NEW LOOK!
The Chehalis River Basin Land Trust now protects
nearly 4,000 acres of valuable habitat in the basin.
Our promise is to protect these lands forever.
