GHKP Conservation Fund

With our region's continued growth, the protection of valuable, conservable land is essential to our greater Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula community’s environmental health, economic vitality and resiliency.  

 

Through the GHKP Conservation Fund, you can help make possible diverse efforts to protect area lands for open space, wildlife corridors, historic significance or to help balance our built environment.

 

The Fund's visionary founders, sought to establish an endowed fund that would help ensure financial resources were available locally as opportunities arose to safeguard area lands and protect nature as both an economic and community asset that provides open space, important cultural ties, habitat, respite, biodiversity, air and water recharge, and much more.

ABOUT

The Fund is designated for lands that provide open space, wildlife habitat and nursery, wetland preservation, access to public lands, trails, and watershed protection in the Gig Harbor and Key peninsulas. Established priorities include lands that:

  • are adjacent to shorelines,

  • have unique conservation value and are at risk of development,

  • are within the City of Gig Harbor's UGA,

  • provide core habitat functions for area fauna and flora,

  • contain viewsheds or important scenic views,

  • are considered to have cultural, historical, or archeological significance, 

  • are adjacent or proximate to other permanently protected lands.

 

Through the GHKP Conservation Fund, the Foundation is able to partner with local government, area park districts, and nonprofit organizations like the Great Peninsula Conservancy, to help provide critical funding for land acquisitions and conservation easements.
