Helping Landowners

Our conservation specialists help landowners assess the natural systems on their land, evaluate the options, and determine the best conservation techniques to use. Through voluntary donations and land protection agreements, the Great Peninsula Conservancy is now responsible for the stewardship of working farms and forestlands, creeks, estuaries and shorelines.

Serving Communities

People want to protect what they love, and here on the Great Peninsula it is easy to fall in love with place. In communities throughout the region, neighbors have joined neighbors to protect the special places near their homes. Working with the Great Peninsula Conservancy, citizen groups are protecting forever woodlands and wetlands, streams and shorelines in their own neighborhoods.

Building Partnerships

To accomplish land conservation in an era of escalating land values and diminishing public funds requires that we forge new and innovative partnerships to leverage our scarce resources. Working with partners throughout the region, the Great Peninsula Conservancy is making great strides in preserving natural systems that are critical to the health of all communities.

The Great Peninsula region of western Puget Sound spans Kitsap, Mason, and west Pierce counties. We who live here are blessed with extraordinary beauty, abundant nature and solitude - amongst pristine beaches, quiet forests, rich tidelands, wide open spaces and scenic farmlands. We live in a world where it’s still not too late to hear the song of rare birds, the splash of spawning salmon, or to see eagles and osprey soaring overhead.

The Conservancy’s mission assures our children and grandchildren that these places, these natural treasures, will remain here for them and their children, too.
