Chamna Natural Preserve Improvement Sponsor

In 2002, the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau announced Bechtel's sponsorship of three legacy projects for three rivershore area. Bechtel-led volunteer teams led the effort to restore natural habitat, protect cultural resources, and provide low-impact recreational activities. Bechtel worked closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tapteal Greenway Association, the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau, the Tri-Cities Rivershore Enhancement Council. Benton County, and the Colville, Nez Perce, Umatilla, Yakama, and Wanapum tribes. Rivershore projects are aligned with Bechtel's work at the Hanford Site to protect the Columbia River. The Chamna Natural Preserve project enhanced access at the Yakima River delta in south Richland, added native plants to a newly constructed parking lot, installed an information kiosk and drinking fountain, and placed boulders along a newly constructed road.
