Algona Wetland Preserve
A community wetland planning and education project in partnership with Natural Systems Design and the City of Algona.
At Futurewise, we believe that every Washingtonian deserves to live in a thriving urban or rural community, with a healthy environment and access to open space. Advancing affordable, walkable, and connected cities and towns is crucial to protecting our valuable farms and wildlife habitats from sprawl, especially as our state grows. By taking on an interconnected set of challenges—protecting open space, keeping housing affordable, improving transit and curbing pollution—Washingtonians who live in cities will have a better quality of life and also take the pressure off our rural areas.
Futurewise works in communities across the state, as well as at the state level, to promote housing affordability, walking, biking and transit options, and vibrant local economies. We approach this work through the lens of racial equity by advocating for policies that redress the impacts of historic racist policies like redlining.
