Mountains To Sound Greenway National Heritage Area: #YesGreenwayNHA!

Thank you to those who continue to support to designate the Mountains to Sound Greenway as a National Heritage Area. There has been some exciting news.

On June 15th, the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a hearing on the Greenway National Heritage Area billThe hearing moves this bill one step closer to reality, and with the continued efforts of Senators Cantwell and Murray, and Congressmen Dave Reichert and Adam Smith, it is hoped to have the bill pass this session.

The delegation heard from thousands of constituents that the Mountains to Sound Greenway is a special place that is worthy of national recognition. A letter will be sent to Senators and Congressmen thanking them for their efforts and encouraging them to create the Greenway National Heritage Area by the end of December. Please consider adding your name as a signatory to the letter.

The hearing is a big step forward, but there is still plenty of work to be done to bring the Greenway National Heritage Area bill all the way to successful passage by Congress and the President’s desk. To learn more, visit:
