Join the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust as the organization celebrates 20 years.

The nonprofit organization, founded in September 1991, oversees preservation projects in a greenbelt stretching along Interstate 90 from the Seattle waterfront to Central Washington.

In order to celebrate 20 years, the greenway is celebrating at KeyArena at 7 p.m. Friday as the Seattle Storm face the Phoenix Mercury.

Tickets cost $20 and $5 goes to support the greenway. Order tickets and enter the password “greenway” at the prompt for special ticket pricing.

Providing the password also means attendees get automatically seated in the greenway section.

Call 206.382.5565 or email info@mtsgreenway.org for more information.

The idea for a conservation corridor along the interstate germinated in Issaquah more than 20 years ago. Issaquah Alps Trails Club members spearheaded a 1990 march from Snoqualmie Pass to Puget Sound to attract attention to the proposed greenbelt.
