Rising from the meltwaters of an ancient glacier, the Nisqually River courses 78 miles through Mount Rainier National Park to its delta in the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, on Puget Sound.
Founded in 1989, the Nisqually Land Trust acquires and manages critical lands to permanently benefit the water, wildlife, and people of the Nisqually River Watershed. Today we protect over 5,000 acres between the park and the wildlife refuge.
