Watchable Wildlife Site, Beebe Springs Natural Area

Client: Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Chelan, Washington

Beebe Springs Natural Area lies between the Columbia River and Highway 97 near the Chelan Fish Hatchery in northcentral Washington State. The property, a former orchard in the Columbia Basin, was purchased to restore the site for salmon habitat and public access as a Watchable Wildlife site.

Solution: Working closely with the public and stakeholders, a design was developed incorporating trails and viewing platforms with educational and interpretive facilities that will enhance the visitor’s experience and educate the viewer about the flora and fauna on the site, as well as the cultural and historical resources of the area.

The natural environment at Beebe Springs Natural Area will be preserved, restored, and enhanced to create habitat for fish and wildlife, and viewing opportunities for visitors.

Role: As Interpretive Planner, Cascade Interpretive Consulting developed the interpretive program, goals and storylines; made recommendations for interpretive features and participated as a project planning team member.
