Ensuring the Foundation of a Strong Agricultural Industry
The agricultural industry is one of our state’s leading industries. Protecting prime agricultural land is not only critical to our economy but also to ensuring local food sources. With our state’s population growing rapidly and with climate change presenting a very real threat to our nation’s food sources, it is critical we protect our state’s farmlands and farm economy. Through Futurewise’s work in 2015, we protected over 19,000 acres of prime agricultural lands, maintaining and enhancing the long-term health and economy of Washington State.
