WINTHROP — Facing a shrinking budget, the U.S. Forest Service is collaborating with a nonprofit group to raise $1 million to help fund projects on the Methow Valley Ranger District.

The National Forest Foundation picked the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forests as one of 14 Treasured Landscapes nationwide. Private funds will be raised over five years, and matched by $1 million from the U.S. Forest Service, to support projects in the upper Methow Valley ranging from a wolverine study to restoring alpine habitat.
