Conserve the Mountains to Sound Greenway

Conserve the Mountains to Sound Greenway

Our voice can protect 1.5 million acres of land, extending from the Seattle waterfront to Ellensburg. Together we can pass The Greenway National Heritage Area Bill, which would provide the recognition and resources needed to conserve the Greenway for future generations.

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. The area is home to 1,600 miles of trails, whitewater runs, backcountry skiing, snowshoeing terrain, rock climbing routes, mountain biking, and views of the stunning Cascade Crest.

Recently, the bill took a big step forward with its first Senate hearing. Our Washington representatives need our ongoing encouragement to keep fighting for the Greenway.
