Mission: The mountains to sound greenway trust conserves and enhances the landscape from seattle across the cascade mountains to central washington, ensuring a long-term balance between people and nature.
Programs: Stewardship: each year, greenway volunteers donate more than 40,000 hours to outdoor trail and restoration projects and plant more than 20,000 native trees and shrubs. Over 50% of volunteers are youth. Greenway trust crews continue construction on a new 5-mile trail and trailhead at mailbox peak, and finished removing 11 miles of forest roads in the granite lakes area of the middle fork valley.
policy and coalition: the greenway trust maintains a comprehensive list of priority land acquisitions throughout the greenway and facilitates land transactions between willing sellers and buyers. The trust is an active participant in land use and land management discussions, and actively pursues funding opportunities to fill in regional trail gaps. The greenway trust and partners are asking congress to designate the mountains to sound greenway as a national heritage area.
public engagement: the greenway education program teaches more than 5,000 king county students per year in classrooms and on field study trips to tiger mountain. Hundreds of people participate in guided hikes and bike ride tours of the greenway landscape. Greenway 365 educates the public about recreational and educational activities in the mountains to sound greenway.
