Pony up for a Potty on the Snoqualmie River

FALL CITY – The beautiful Snoqualmie River is less than an hour’s drive from Seattle and a great summertime destination. Every summer over 26,000 people visit the river to enjoy its beauty, bathe in its coolness, and float its currents – and yet there is not a permanent toilet for recreationalist along the river. The Mountains to Sound Greenway is leading a fundraising campaign to install a permanent vault toilet at two of the popular river access points.

In the Northwest we pride ourselves on our green forests, pure air, and clean streams, but these things don’t just happen on their own. In order to maintain healthy public lands immediately adjacent to our urban centers, we need the help of everyone to pitch in. These days, agencies are asked to do more with less and struggle to get the funds needed to build and maintain our public spaces. For 23 years the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust has been working side-by-side with public agencies to help fill the gaps and provide support where needed.

Help us keep the Snoqualmie River a beautiful place for summer fun for generations to come. How much do you value a place to go to the bathroom? How much do you value a clean river to swim and float in? Name your price and Pony up for a Potty!
