Posted on Jun 4, 2024 in Washington's Wilderness Areas

ABOUT 
Located in the northern Blue Mountains of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon, the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness encompasses 176,557 acres. The majority of the Wilderness is characterized by rugged basaltic ridges and outcroppings with plant communities that vary widely from bunchgrass slopes to higher subalpine areas of lodgepole pine and subalpine fir. Both the Tucannon River and Wild & Scenic Wenaha River provide spawning habitat for Chinook salmon, steelhead, and bull trout.  

HOW IT WAS PROTECTED 
The Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness was created by the Endangered American Wilderness Act of 1978.
