Land protected in I-90 corridor

The nonprofit conservation group Forterra (formerly Cascade Land Conservancy) on Dec. 7 purchased 480 acres of forest habitat for permanent conservation a few miles northeast of Easton near the shores of Lake Kachess, according to a news release.

The Mount Amabilis property was purchased to provide critical wildlife habitat and serves as an important piece of the long-range strategy to conserve habitat lands near the planned Interstate 90 wildlife bridges that will allow wildlife to cross I-90 safely.
