Help Us Grow Our Forest at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park!

ORGANIZATION: Forterra

Start your weekend with panoramic views of Puget Sound and the Olympia Mountains while we take care of native habitat restoration areas. Many thanks go to the University of Washington students and community members who planned and planted these areas. We'll be watering thirsty plants and getting rid of invasive species. We’ll also show you our unique and water-saving irrigation system - and how you can set it up in your own gardens to save water and keep your plants healthy. If there’s time we might clear some scotch broom, too!

No experience is necessary; just an interest in having fun while protecting native habitat. We provide all of the tools and work gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish. We appreciate everyone who comes to help us restore nearshore habitat at the park. We look forward to spending a lovely morning together!

About Forterra

Location:

901 5th Avenue, Suite 2200, Seattle, WA 98164, US

Mission Statement

Forterra's mission is to act with immediacy to protect, enhance and steward our region's most precious resources--its communities and its landscapes. Since 1989, we have been working toward a future in which our children and grandchildren can experience nature in and around our urban environments.

Description

Forterra conserves land by working with individuals, companies and local governments. We strive to maximize the ecological value of land, while meeting the needs of landowners. We may accept land as a donation, purchase it, or transfer it to public ownership. We often serve as a broker to identify and negotiate the most effective ownership to protect important lands. We establish conservation easements to preserve special features. For each and every property, we explore available strategies or create new ones to provide permanent protection. Forterra has established a Conservation Agenda for our region, with specific priorities and methods for each type of landscape. Current initiatives include the protection of working forests on the foothills of the Cascades, and the creation of salmon sanctuaries along our region's highest quality rivers and streams.
