The Hoh River Trust Organization

The Hoh River Trust is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation formed in February 2004 by Western Rivers Conservancy and the Wild Salmon Center to own and actively steward land that was being acquired by Western Rivers Conservancy along the Hoh River on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula. The Trust currently owns just under 7,130 acres of river land between the Olympic National Park boundary and the Pacific Ocean.
