Blue Mountain Land Trust

Blue Mountain Land Trust is dedicated to protecting for future generations the land we love, working farms and forests, watershed habitat and scenic views through voluntary partnerships with private landowners.

The initial meeting to organize a land trust in the Walla Walla area was held on July 6, 1999.  Invitations were sent to the three local colleges, the county extension office, the Native Plant Society, Audubon, Walla Walla 2020, the Washington Fish and Wildlife Department, area farmers, the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, the Seattle office of the Land Trust Alliance, the inland Northwest Land Trust in Spokane, the Palouse Land trust in Moscow and other conservation groups and interested individuals.
At the initial meeting, articles of incorporation were approved to establish the Blue Mountain Land Trust (BMLT) as a Washington non-profit corporation and 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization with broad powers to preserve land for recreation, education, habitat, open space, farmland, forest land and historical purposes throughout the Blue Mountain region of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon. Our non-profit tax ID is 91-1989279
