There will be exclusive social events around the Puget Sound area for people who are a part of Forterra NEXT.

KING COUNTY, Wash. – Forterra has launched Forterra NEXT to engage with the community and build support to conserve Land for Good.  

Forterra will host exclusive social events, walks, tours of Forterra properties and more around the Puget Sound region. These events will allow participants to learn more about Forterra and the conservation efforts in their area, and meet other people who want to tackle the climate crisis, care about urban parks and forests and who are committed to addressing the biggest issues our region faces. 

“Climate change affects all aspects of our lives, and it will get worse unless we address it,” said Michelle Connor, President and CEO of Forterra. “But there are steps we can take right now to make things better. One of the reasons we launched Forterra NEXT is to connect with others who want to protect the lands we all rely on.” 

The first event will be at the Fremont Mischief Distillery in Seattle. At 6 p.m. on October 25th, people interested in Forterra NEXT are invited for drinks, snacks and a preview of a new podcast series, “Rooted – Where We Stand.” It was developed to tell stories that connect people to place and community. 

“Supporting equitable, green and prosperous communities is something we need to do together,” Connor said. “We invite everyone who wants to help to be a part of Forterra NEXT.”
