Beebe Spring Natural Area, near Chelan, WA

All rights reserved.

Beebe Springs is a former

agricultural field on the shore of

Lake Entiat.  With historic pesticides

and limited ecological value, the site

was re-imagined with the Department of Fish and Wildlife as a rich habitat for salmon, other animals, plants and humans.  Side channels to Lake Entiat were excavated and vegetated for fish and animal habitat.  A new spawning channel was cut into the landscape, featuring gravel spawning areas, log jams for sediment reduction, and thick native vegetation to shade and cool water for fish.  Recreation in the Natural Area includes miles of hiking trails, multiple stream crossings with 50-span bridges and overlooks for habitat viewing and learning.  With JA Brennan.
