Where is the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area?
The Mountains to Sound Greenway landscape spans 1.5 million acres from Seattle to Ellensburg along the I-90 corridor.
What is the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust?
The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust is a coalition-based organization that works to steward the 1.5 million acres stretching from Seattle to Ellensburg, all while promoting access to the outdoors and striking a balance between the natural world and the people who call this region home.
Today, the coalition that makes up the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust encompasses a 60-member Board of Directors, a 30-member Board of Advisors, a 100-member Technical Advisory Council, more than a dozen staff members, and a community of hundreds of citizens and dozens of interest groups.
What does the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust do?
The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust leads and inspires action to conserve and enhance the landscape of the Mountains to Sound Greenway, ensuring a long-term balance between people and nature.
We work to conserve and restore natural lands, open spaces, and historic sites; build and maintain recreational trails; engage with students through our environmental education program; advocate for public lands and recreational access; lead a robust volunteer program; and so much more.
We are also the coordinating entity for the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area. National Heritage Areas are places designated by Congress where historic, cultural, and natural resources combine to form cohesive, nationally important landscapes. We received designation in March 2019 and are currently in the midst of a three-year cooperative management planning process.
The work we do would not be possible without the partners that we collaborate with every day. The Greenway coalition is a catalyst for action, convening multiple interest groups. We work together to tackle challenges and plan for the future of this incredible landscape and the people who live, work, and play here.
