HDR Foundation awards Capitol Land Trust grant funding
This summer Capitol Land Trust was awarded $14,890 in grant funds from the HDR Foundation. “It’s the promise of the HDR Foundation to support organizations and activities that align with HDR’s values and areas of expertise, with the benefits going to the community.” The HDR Foundation is part of HDR, Inc. which specializes in “engineering, architecture, environmental and construction services” around the world.
The funds are awarded to assist Capitol Land Trust (CLT) with making our Randall Preserve, located just outside of Olympia city limits on the banks of the iconic Mud Bay, a place for public enjoyment and education. As part of CLT’s 2020 Strategic Plan we have launched a new initiative about community engagement on some of our preserves. Randall Preserve is currently open to the public, and with these funds from HDR Foundation, CLT can make it a more welcoming place. The plans for Randall include: trail enhancements; interpretive signage to tell the story of the property, its history and importance to the Squaxin Island Tribe, and to explain why its protection is so important; and benches at scenic viewing areas.
Capitol Land Trust is excited for this opportunity to enhance the Randall Preserve! Thank you HDR Foundation for helping to make this happen!
