Klickitat River Corridor

This ‘featured place’ may present a challenge in defining the boundaries of the ‘place.’  The Columbia Land Trust has a project within about 6 river miles of the confluence of the Klickitat River and the Columbia River.  They have other projects scattered upstream, including acquisition projects, salmon restoration projects, etc. View their web site >>

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife manages the Klickitat Wildlife Area (14,700 acres). 

Washington DNR manages the Klickitat Canyon Natural Resources Conservation Area.

The Klickitat River watershed has Oregon white oak ecosystems, a number of rare plant species, and salmon which are an important resource for Native Americans.  For the rest of us, there are hiking, biking, and fishing opportunities.  The canyon includes several habitat restoration sites and cultural heritage sites sacred to native peoples.
