Connected with nature, our lives are better
We are healthier and happier, and our communities are stronger, more equitable, and more economically competitive. Enhancing people’s connections to nature drives our mission.The Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area is an iconic 1.5 million-acre landscape that connects Central Washington, the Cascade Mountains, and Puget Sound. The Greenway promotes a healthy and sustainable relationship between people and the land by holistically balancing built and natural environments. The Greenway landscape provides places for nature and wildlife, for culture and tradition, for outdoor recreation and education, for working forests and local agricultural production, while embracing vibrant urban areas. The Greenway is valued by a broad cross-section of society, working together as an effective coalition to conserve this place and its heritage for future generations.
