WENATCHEE — A large state grant has pushed fundraising efforts over the top in a two-year, locally fueled campaign to buy Wenatchee foothills lands for public recreation and wildlife habitat.

The approximately $1 million grant from the state Wildlife and Recreation Program has boosted total funds raised to more than $8.4 million, the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust announced this morning. That total exceeds the non-profit’s fundraising goal of $8.15 million.
