Bench with a view: Officials and volunteers with the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust hope people will appreciate a longtime Land Trust volunteer when they sit on a bench above the Horse Lake Reserve. The bench, installed in August by officials and volunteers, honors Dennis Garrity, a Land Trust board member from 2003 until he died in 2012.

“He was a remarkable man,” said Bob Bugert, Land Trust director. “He really had a passion for conservation.” In particular, Bugert said, Garrity worked hard on the Horse Lake Reserve, which makes up 1,700 acres above Wenatchee’s north end. On the bench is a plaque honoring Garrity.
