STEAMBOAT CONSERVATION PARTNERSHIP

The Griffin Neighborhood Association and Capitol Land Trust have created a unique partnership to conserve the natural areas that make the Eld and Totten Inlet watersheds so special.

Thank you, Griffin area residents! We have met our fundraising goal for the fourth year. The challenge now is to meet our goal during the fifth year of our partnership with Capitol Land Trust. Help us to reach $75,000 by the end of our fifth year.

Help us to meet our goal of $15,000 for each of  five years.

WHO IS THE GRIFFIN NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION?

The Griffin Neighborhood Association (GNA) is a registered, nonprofit, nonpartisan group of neighbors living within the boundaries of the Griffin School District, Thurston County, Washington.

Any person owning property, a business, or residing in the Griffin area is eligible to become a member and to participate fully in the Association. Membership is also open to community groups and students of the Griffin School District. If you live or work in the Griffin neighborhood or Steamboat Peninsula, the Griffin Neighborhood Association is you.

Originally organized as the Oyster Bay Neighborhood Association in 1990, we were registered as the nonprofit Griffin Neighborhood Association in December, 1995.


MISSION OF THE GRIFFIN NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION

Our mission is to help build community consensus on major issues confronting the Griffin area, including growth, land issues, habitat, water quality, transportation and school planning. When appropriate, we research issues as honest brokers of information, provide forums for debate, attempt to arrive at community consensus and issue resolution, and present this consensus to appropriate decision makers.

The Griffin Neighborhood Association also undertakes and supports projects that benefit our community, help to build a sense of community, and educate the community on topics of interest.


BOARD AND OFFICERS OF THE GRIFFIN NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION

Our Board is comprised of current members of the Association, elected by members of the Association present at the Annual Meeting. Officers are elected from the Board membership by members of the Board.

The Board typically sets a schedule of regular meetings, annually. Tentative meeting dates, times and locations are posted on the Community Calendar.
