See Our Core Priorities
WALT was originally formed to be the collective advocacy voice of the land trust community in Washington. In this role, we leverage local knowledge and perspectives from every corner of our state to ensure decision makers understand the core role of open space in a bright future. We are also a leading statewide advocate for funding and policies that allow private landowners to create a lasting conservation legacy for future generations.
We believe that the land trust journey is never over. In the effort to authentically represent and support the open space needs of diverse local stakeholders, everyone has something to teach and everyone has room to grow. As our member organizations continue to expand the breadth and complexity of their vision, we remain committed to helping them on that journey by sparking new ideas and stretching our comfort zones as a statewide community.
