Great Peninsula Conservancy is a private nonprofit land trust dedicated to protecting forever the rural landscapes, natural habitats and open spaces of the Great Peninsula of Puget Sound.

We conserve pristine shorelines, critical salmon streams, evergreen forests, and wildlife-rich wetlands throughout Kitsap, Mason, and west Pierce Counties, Washington.

The conservancy protects wildlands and provides opportunities for people to enjoy them forever. Our work is supported by donations and grants from those committed to preservation of open space, clean water and wild creatures.

REI Supports Stewardship!

A $10,000 grant from REI will support Great Peninsula Conservancy's stewardship activities on Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park and Banner Forest Heritage Park this fall.

To get ready, 24 volunteers received Trail Crew Leadership Training. On June 13, our new trail crew leaders constructed the first 100 feet of new trail at Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park.

Thank you REI, Kitsap County Parks, and our wonderful volunteers! Washington Trail Associationprovided training and CB's Nuts fueled the crew. View more photos.
