Organization records of the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, a non-profit corporation concerned with the protection and enhancement of wildlife and recreational opportunities along Interstate 90 in Washington state.

Biographical/historical note

The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust is a non-profit corporation founded in 1991 by a coalition of individuals, businesses, and agencies interested in protecting the scenic beauty along Interstate 90 in Washington state. The Trust's goals include protection and enhancement of the scenery, wildlife, and recreational opportunities of the Cascades to Puget Sound corridor. The Trust encourages sustainable community development and supports public acquisition and private preservation of forest land. In its decade long existence the Trust has facilitated the transfer of approximately 50,000 acres of forest to public ownership. Land has been acquired through a series of gifts, purchases, and brokered property exchanges between private owners and county, state, and federal partners.

The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust maintains a website at www.mtsgreenway.org.
