The Okanogan County natural resources recovery guide [PDF] offers a wide variety of assistance sources for homeowners. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) also offers a wealth of information and resources for landowners in the central Washington area affected by the 2015 wildfires.
Also online is a comprehensive 115-page seedling identification guide from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife — this is a large file and may take some time to download.
Also online are numerous resources provided by the NRCS for private landowners whose properties were affected by the fires. The items listed below are PDF documents.
- Assessing tree injuries
- Erosion control mats
- Hillside home drainage
- Sandbag barriers
- Tree injuries
- Tree and shrub plantings
- Wenatchee area seeding
