Our Mission

To protect, preserve, and restore the diverse ecosystems of Olympia, Washington that include the freshwater, shoreline, tidal waters, and upland forests that are home to the Pacific Great Blue Heron, cutthroat trout, salmon, and companion species. In coordination with community members, local agencies, and other non-profit groups, we work to ensure that these ecosystems remain vital in perpetuity. OlyEcoystems is organized exclusively for the above purpose under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code or any corresponding section of any future tax code.
