Each year, Recreation Northwest works with a partner stewardship organization associated with the Olympia Traverse. Our selection criteria is that it is a local organization that has demonstrated a commitment to the community through the work they do and the programs they offer. We also select based on organizations who have been directly involved with our event and will continue to participate with us and take the opportunity to use this as an awareness and fundraising opportunity for themselves.
The ONE for 2014
We have selected Capitol Land Trust for this year. Their dedication to stewardship is admirable and we recognize them for their contributions. We hope you will too- please donate directly to their cause to further their efforts.
Capitol Land Trust
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2013, Capitol Land Trust is an accredited, non-profit and membership-based land trust dedicated to helping people conserve land in southwest Washington. Capitol Land Trust has permanently conserved more than 13 miles of Puget Sound shoreline and 5,000 acres in Thurston, Mason, Grays Harbor and Lewis Counties, including land now managed as public parks, wildlife habitat, and working farms and forests. With support from private landowners, elected officials, tribal members, government agencies, business leaders, conservation organizations, and its membership base, Capitol Land Trust has secured more than thirty million dollars in recent years for its conservation projects, directly benefiting the local economy. Capitol Land Trust’s mission is to further collaborative and strategic conservation of southwest Washington’s essential natural areas and working lands.
