The Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition (CWSC) is an amazing group of local residents, fire district members, a Chelan County Commissioner, and the Washington Department of Natural Resources, and several conservation organizations who have realized that addressing wildfire issues in the Leavenworth Community is an important part of the health and welfare of our local citizens and our local forests. This grassroots group works with private and public landowners to create communities that are more resistant to wildfire. 
 
We have several upcoming community events, programs, workshops and opportunities! We hope you can join us at one of these events listed below or contact us for more information regarding our cost share programs or events you may be eligible to participate in at https://www.chumstickcoalition.org/contact
