Conserve the Mountains to Sound Greenway

Conserve the Mountains to Sound Greenway

Our voices helped protect 1.5 million acres of land, extending from the Seattle waterfront to Ellensburg. On March 12, a sweeping public lands package was signed into law, which included a measure to designate the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area. 

Designating the Greenway as a National Heritage Area demonstrates a tremendous commitment to the recreational haven we're so lucky to have in Seattle's backyard. We'd like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who answered calls-to-action on behalf of this issue. Achievements like this require the constant voice of public lands champions. You all helped highlight the importance of the outdoor experience to legislators, and they listened.
