Nisqually Land Trust

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 protect the water, wildlife, natural areas, and scenic vistas of the Nisqually River Watershed. Today we protect over 4,600 acres between the park and the wildlife refuge.



Your donation will help to preserve the Nisqually River forever.


Camaraderie, fun and meaningful accomplishment await you as a Nisqually Land Trust volunteer. From our board of directors to the volunteer site stewards who help monitor and restore our protected lands, our volunteers contribute their time, expertise and enthusiasm to an important cause.
