Communities that thrive

The Greenway isn’t just about forests. The Greenway Trust helps promote livable cities of all sizes, from Seattle to Bellevue to North Bend to Cle Elum. Why? It’s all connected. Healthy economies create the regional wealth needed to maintain natural areas. Natural areas for recreation attract world-class employees. And great urban areas, where people want to live, reduce pressure to develop rural areas. There, the Greenway Trust supports economic opportunities in the form of recreation, tourism, forestry and farming. This balance preserves a way of life for everybody.

We also support thriving communities by inspiring the next generation of leaders and stewards through out Volunteer Program and Environmental Education program.
