Cowiche Canyon Conservancy

to promote a healthy future for our community by conserving our heritage of open space, scenic vistas, and riparian corridors from Yakima to the Cascade foothills, with connected recreation trails and natural landscapes.

A non-profit membership organization, CCC is particularly dedicated to preserving, enhancing and maintaining the essential features of shrub-steppe and riparian terrain within the Cowiche Creek and Naches River watershed areas in the Yakima Valley region of Washington State, including the Cowiche Canyon, its adjacent undeveloped uplands, and Snow Mountain Ranch. 
Lands preserved by Cowiche Canyon Conservancy are a key component of a trail that is envisioned to stretch from Yakima to Mount Rainier (Tahoma).  CCC is working in close partnership with the William O. Douglas Trail Foundation and others to accomplish this vision.
The conservancy manages public use of the area consistent with its capacity as a natural area. Public access is via an unpaved trail system.
