Mountaineers Foundation: Natural Places, Sustainable Practices

Natural Places, Sustainable Practices


Benefactors are important humanitarian leaders and charitable patrons whose investments power our mission.

With our benefactors support, together, we accomplished important environmental work. We have:

  • Purchased a 60-acre conservation easement from Ueland Tree Farm
  • Protected riparian zones along Chico Creek and its tributaries
  • Supported 30+ deserving conservation education organizations working within the Salish Sea region through our Community Grants Program
  • Improved habitat within the Rhododendron Preserve
  • Improved critical spawning habitat for the largest Chum Salmon run in southern Puget Sound
  • Cleaned up the Hidden Valley Ranch, historically a Paschall Family homestead

100% of your donation will support our worthy environmental programs.

To continue expanding on these accomplishments, we have established the Second Century Fund. It is dedicated to protecting and maintaining the Rhododendron Preserve well into the future. The need to fund the Foundation’s work is great and on-going. We still have a long way to go for the Second Century Fund to achieve its goal of $500,000, and there is far more damaged habitat that needs restoration.

The intricate relationships among people, the land, and salmon populations in the Puget Sound basin demonstrate the truth of scientific research on the connection between ecosystem health and our own well-being; we are all part of an intricate web of relationships in which you play an important part. Please consider joining our mission and extending healthy habitat for all of us: salmon, people, frogs, birds and all of the other creatures that call this part of the world home.

You can make a real difference. Become a friend of the Pacific Northwest by giving a charitable donation today. Any contribution to Mountaineers Foundation, no matter how small, helps. And because our overhead expenses are covered by an endowment, 100% of your donation will support our worthy environmental programs. Thank you for your investment.

Many Thanks,

Mindy Roberts
President, Mountaineers Foundation
