The Chelan-Douglas Land Trust has purchased 40 more acres of property on the White River for conservation. [
The $160,000 purchase is part of a conservation plan that has secured most of the lower portion of the river before it empties into Lake Wenatchee.
The river is a rearing and spawning ground for Chinook, sockeye salmon and bull trout.
In addition, it provides 24 percent of the water flowing through the Wenatchee River.
