ABOUT THE MOUNTAINS TO SOUND GREENWAY TRUST
The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust works to steward a landscape that stretches 100 miles from the shores of Puget Sound, across the Cascade Mountains, to Central Washington. The Greenway Trust also coordinates the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area (NHA), which honors the historical and cultural significance of this place and helps to preserve and celebrate its living heritage. The Restoration Crew contributes to the goals of the NHA by implementing ecological restoration projects that focus on riparian restoration to improve habitat for threatened Chinook salmon, community restoration projects that focus on restoring open spaces in neighborhoods with less access to healthy green spaces, and supports agency efforts to minimize the impacts of noxious weeds on public and private lands.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
We believe that when we are connected to nature, our lives are better. We are healthier, happier, and our communities are stronger. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion at the Greenway Trust because we want to better reflect the diverse communities that make up the Greenway NHA, because we believe that equity and inclusion are vital to our mission, and because we want to do our part to create a more just society. We are committed to creating lasting structural changes internally in our workplace and externally in the communities we serve.
