Hunting & Wind Facility Access
Public access to lands within the Marengo wind facility is available for hunting, birdwatching and other recreational activities, subject to certain restrictions.
Special rules are in place to ensure the safety of hunters, local residents, wind project workers and equipment. More information is available through the wind project hunting video and brochure (PDF). Remember, hunting on private lands is a privilege and, as with all hunting activities, rules and prohibitions are enforced by state game agents and local law enforcement.
Access to PacifiCorp’s Marengo wind facility, Puget Sound Energy’s adjacent Hopkins Ridge wind facility and Portland General Electric's Tucannon River wind farm is jointly administered by the utilities. With this shared access program, hunters only need to register with one utility to hunt at any of these wind facilities.
Written permission for access to these lands may be obtained by completing the online registration form below. Forms are also available at:
The General Store
426 Main Street
Dayton, Washington, 99328
