STEWARDS OF THE LAND

As a member of the Kittitas Conservation Trust (KCT), Tumble Creek and Suncadia are committed to sustainable building practices, prioritizing open spaces, and preserving the pristine forests and meadows of the river corridor. Over 70% of both Suncadia and Tumble Creek will remain undeveloped – ensuring the enjoyment and beauty of the land for future generations. KCT currently manages easements on thousands of acres in
Suncadia and Tumble Creek, including the Cle Elum River corridor, along with managed and natural open spaces.

KCT: Preserves A Legacy

Kittitas Conservation Trust is a local land trust born out of an agreement between Suncadia, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Yakima Nation to protect the essential habitat in the Suncadia community. The original founders envisioned that KCT would expand its footprint and protect important lands throughout Kittitas County. Even today, we have the opportunity to preserve additional pieces of valuable habitat on the banks of the Yakama River. This is a legacy that has become important to our homeowners, as they help preserve this pristine natural setting—along with memories—for our children’s children.

PROTECTED WILDLIFE

Over 180 species of birds, over 40 species of mammals, and several species of reptiles, amphibians, and fish utilize habitats that occur on the Suncadia property.
