Wildlife of the Entiat River

October 14, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Title: Wildlife of the Entiat River | Vida Silvestre del río Entiat

Date: Sat, 10/14/2023

Time: 8:00am-1:00pm

Location: Stormy Creek Preserve in Entiat, WA

This event is hosted by the Chelan Douglas Land Trust and Cascadia Conservation District

Description: The Entiat River Valley’s dramatic landscape is home to a variety of native plants and wildlife. The river begins at Entiat Glacier, and its clear waters are one of the most productive spawning grounds for endangered spring Chinook salmon, threatened steelhead, threatened bull trout, and fall Chinook salmon. More than 8 miles of riverfront and 651 acres of riparian habitat are permanently preserved by the Land Trust along the Entiat River Watershed. These protection efforts provide respite for spawning fish, habitat for wildlife, and allows the river to follow its natural meandering course. During this event you will visit some of these protected areas as we look for signs of wildlife, see recently completed beaver dam analog restoration, and observe and learn about the spawning salmon. All ages are welcome and there is no cost to attend the event. Stormy Creek Preserve is 40 minutes from Wenatchee in Entiat.

El río comienza en el glaciar Entiat y sus aguas cristalinas son una de las zonas de desove más productivas para el salmón Chinook de primavera en peligro de extinción, la trucha arcoíris amenazada, la trucha toro amenazada y el salmón Chinook de otoño. El Land Trust preserva permanentemente más de 8 millas de ribera y 651 acres de hábitat ribereño a lo largo de la cuenca del río Entiat.
