The Mountain to Sound Greenway, the 1.5 million-acre landscape between Puget Sound and Central Washington, has reintroduced legislation proposing it be named a National Heritage Area.

 

The Mountain to Sound Greenway, the 1.5 million-acre landscape between Puget Sound and Central Washington, has reintroduced legislation proposing it be named a National Heritage Area.

This legislation was introduced last year and passed out of both chambers but was not voted on by Congress before the end of the year.

This legislation’s promotion of tourism and outdoor recreation is intended to spark local economic growth by attracting people to the business and communities along the Greenway.

The legislation has support from the mayors of Carnation, North Bend and Duvall and more than 5,000 businesses, nonprofits, and individuals.

More than  3,000 hikers, kayakers, and bikers supported the National Heritage Area designation through the Outdoor Alliance.
