Mission Statement


Protect and enhance a 100-mile corridor of permanent open space lands along Interstate 90 from Seattle to Central Washington. The Greenway embraces city parks and trails, wildlife habitat, working and protected forests, recreational opportunities in nature, local history, scenic beauty, tourism and educational activities that promote a sustainable balance between population growth and a healthy environment.

Description


The Mountains to Sound Greenway is a scenic, historic and recreation corridor stretching along Interstate 90 from the Seattle waterfront, through the forests and rugged peaks of the Cascades, and into Central Washington. It's a scenic gateway to Washington's largest cities and a pathway to nature for growing city populations. With the increasing population pressures in the greater Puget Sound region, this landscape could easily become a long strip of shopping malls, business parks and housing developments. The MTS Greenway Trust is the organization that works to protect this landscape from poorly planned growth to ensure continued access to recreation and a healthy environment.
