New Land Trust Aims to Turn Timberland to Trails

CHEWELAH, WA—While the thought of running out of recreation land might seem ridiculous in open space-abundant Northeast Washington, it’s critical that outdoor enthusiasts recognize not all of those wide-open spaces will stay that way forever. The Chewelah Valley Land Trust, a 501(c)(3)non-profit, is hoping to preserve a 400-acre chunk of land known as Gold Hill north of the Chewelah Golf Course for mountain biking and hiking. At this time, the land trust plans to maintain trails, manage the land to prevent fire danger, and continue to enhance the 400 acres for public outdoor use. Altogether, the trust wants to ensure that everyone in Chewelah has easy access to greenspace and nearby trails as the town continues to grow. To show their support, Chewelah’s Quartzite Brewing Company will have a trivia-night fundraiser this spring. Even better, the brewery’s Gold Hill Gose goes on tap this summer to raise funds for the Chewelah Valley Land Trust. Follow Quartzite Brewing Company on Facebook for trivia night fundraiser dates.
