Forterra secures places—urban, rural and wild—that are keystones of a sustainable future for all.

From wildlands and working farms and forests, to places in the city for affordable housing, parks and the arts, we work simultaneously across all landscapes because they are interconnected. And ultimately people and lands must all thrive together.

Our Work

Save the Lake Serene Trail

A section is slated to be logged this year. The landowner has given us the opportunity to preserve the forested trail corridor. We need your help to raise $275,000 by October 30th to preserve the trees along the beloved trail and ensure permanent public access to its breathtaking views, waterfalls and reflective alpine lake.

This is Issue 5 of Ampersand Magazine: The Urban Issue
