Build Your Trusts banner 
Welcome to Build Your Trusts, a quarterly e-newsletter. In each issue, we will highlight our state's trust lands and their role in producing non-tax revenue for K-12 schools, universities, counties and others. We'll spotlight examples of the trust beneficiaries--to feature how they put trust funding to work. We also will spotlight some of the people who manage trust lands.
At DNR, we work every day to build the value of state trust lands for the people of Washington--and the financial, ecological and social benefits that flow from the lands to generations of Washington residents. DNR also works to build trusting relationships with those who care deeply about these trust lands, and look forward to your collaboration on this important effort.

Thank you.
