Wenas Wildlife Area
Ellensburg, WA. 98926
The 105,460-acre Wenas Wildlife Area, southwest of Ellensburg in both Yakima and Kittitas counties, is managed as one unit. WDFW owns 70,093 acres, leases 16,514 acres of the 30,643 acres owned by DNR, and manages 3,485 acres for BLM. Elevation ranges from 1,200 to 4,100 feet. Much of the land is very dry, with predominantly south-facing slopes. Except for the cliffs along Umtanum Creek and the Yakima River, most of the topography is not overly steep. The unique soil formation known as the Manastash Mounds is found throughout lands lying south of Umtanum Ridge. Property was first acquired in the mid-1960s for elk wintering habitat. A winter feeding program is conducted annually to help meet management goals for the Yakima elk herd.

The contiguous total of 51,793 acres (of which WDFW owns 11,523 on Quilomene and 17,027 on Whiskey Dick, with the balance in DNR acres) is managed together. The first purchase was made in 1962 with state Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation funds to expand winter range for deer and elk herds and to perpetuate and improve upland game bird habitat.
