  • Weedy Desert Transformed to Educational Oasis

    ENFH wet habitat

    Much of Entiat NFH’s 37 acres was once “a knapweed desert,” said manager Craig Chisam. Now, a young forest, wet habitat, and kid’s fishing pond have transformed the site. 


We are a collection of three hatcheries and a conservation office. Our hatcheries were built in response to the construction of Grand Coulee Dam, as mitigation for the dam's impact. The conservation office has gone through many transformations, becoming part of the Complex when it was organized in 2010. Visit this storymap to learn more...
