ARE THE IMPACTS?

What are the impacts?We’ve conserved more than 275,000 acres of community, habitat and recreational land, ensuring the protection of critical conservation and community assets.
We’ve managed hundreds of thousands of volunteer hours, ensuring beloved spaces and urban forests remain vital and vibrant community spaces.
We’re linking conservation and community-driven development to build affordable housing and spaces. Currently we are developing 1,000 homes and developing 80,000 square feet of commercial space for BIPOC businesses.

We drive impactful, innovative land-based solutions

Whether it takes 10 days or 10 years, we drive land-based solutions by being collaborative and tenacious. It took 10 years for Forterra to facilitate the conservation of 50,272 acres in the Teanaway River Valley – Washington’s largest conservation transaction in more than 50 years.
