Cascade Land Conservancy is now Forterra

For more than two decades, the Cascade Land Conservancy has conserved tens of thousands of acres in the Cascades and surrounding areas. But the organization says its focus has expanded and evolved so it’s changing its name to Forterra. That’s literally, for earth.

From its news release:

In the past 22 years, we have conserved over 173,000 acres from small community parks to working lands spanning tens of thousands of acres. In recent years we have expanded our focus geographically to the Olympic Peninsula and programmatically to include cities and towns.

This new name will allow us to continue to adapt to the needs of the community and effectively advance our mission. The root of the word embodies the end goal of our work. We are for the earth.
