Great Peninsula Conservancy
of Matching Funds Remaining
Great Peninsula Conservancy is an accredited land trust dedicated to protecting forever the natural habitats, rural landscapes and open spaces of west Puget Sound. GPC conserves shorelines, salmon streams, evergreen forests, and community greenspaces for the people and wildlife of Kitsap, Mason, and Pierce counties.
Hidden in the quiet sanctuary of Grovers Creek, just outside of Poulsbo, is a grove of spectacular 200-year old spruce, cedar, hemlock and fir trees, a quiet stream that is home to beavers, life-giving wetlands bursting with bird song, and wandering bears feasting on the fall salmon run. Great Peninsula Conservancy brought together birders, hikers, tribes, and community groups and successfully raised funds to purchase 280 acres of this natural wonder. Now conserved forever, Grovers Creek Preserve ensures these wild creatures will always have a place to call home. Our work to save these lands, and others from Port Gamble to Gig Harbor, also provides greenspaces for people to be inspired by nature and enjoy refreshing walks in the great outdoors.
