One Project, Four Community Values
- Protect vital wildlife habitat: Much of this land provides important wildlife habitat. It also would be in hot demand for high-end development.
- Preserve significant farmland: The fields along Wolf Creek and Patterson Lake are productive irrigated farmland and iconic reminders of agriculture’s role in this Valley.
- Provide housing that is affordable for people who work in the Methow Valley. The property includes land close to the Town of Winthrop that could be ideal for a small neighborhood.
Make trail access permanent: 10 miles of beloved trails (including parts of the Community Trail, Power's Plunge, Barnsley Lake and Bitterbrush) important to our economy cross these lands.
