Mountains To Sound Greenway National Heritage Area

Legislation Introduced!

Bipartisan legislation was introduced in June 2015 to designate the Mountains to Sound Greenway as a National Heritage Area. Senate Bill 1690 was introduced by Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray, and House Bill 2900 was introduced by Congressmen Dave Reichert and Adam Smith. Learn more about the reintroduction and what it means for our region.

To move this legislation through Congress, the delegation needs to hear that local residents care. Email Senator Cantwell to let her know you support the Greenway.

In addition to support in Congress, designation has been endorsed by over 5,000 businesses, governments, non-profits and individuals, including Governor Jay Inslee, King County Executive Dow Constantine, the Kittitas County Commissioners, Microsoft, Expedia, REI, the Trust for Public Land, and the Mountaineers.

Thank you in advance for voicing your support for our region’s future, and the need to create the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area. It’s thoughtful, pragmatic citizens like you who have built the Greenway over the last 25 years and shown the rest of the nation that it is possible to balance conservation with economic growth.
