Logo

Forterra (formerly the Cascade Land Conservancy) envisions a region that combines spectacular landscapes, a vibrant economy and great places to live. We will act with immediacy to protect, enhance, and steward our region's most precious resources - its communities and its landscapes. We will lead a movement to connect conservation to the fabric of our community and thereby change conservation as we know it.

Description:
Since 1989, Forterra has worked with business, civic, and political leaders to conserve 18,000 acres of land. These lands, valued in excess of $100 million, are key to the integrity of our region's watersheds. Utilizing a variety of innovative conservation methods, we work to strategically conserve critical landscapes from headwaters to estuaries, foothills forests to urban centers.

History:
Forterra was founded in 1989, and over time, merged with Tahoma Land Trust, Snohomish Land Trust, and most recently, with the Central Washington Land Trust. Given feedback from many supporters and advocates, we recognized that our organization had outgrown the name Cascade Land Conservancy and in late 2011 we transitioned to Forterra.
