Martha Wyckoff is a Seattle-based community investor contributing time, energy, and resources toward land conservation, the arts, the environment, and civic engagement. She served on the national board of The Trust for Public Land from 1996 to 2009, and currently is an emeritus board member. Other boards on which she serves are the Seattle University Board of Regents, the Seattle Art Museum, the Olympic Sculpture Park committee (co-chair), the Central Waterfront Design Oversight Committee for the redesign of the Seattle waterfront, the Teanaway Community Forest Advisory Committee to create a new community forest in the State of Washington for the Department of Natural Resources, and the TEW Foundation.
In addition to helping raise money for civic and philanthropic causes, she raises hay in Central Washington with her husband and three sons. Holding a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Tufts University, Martha has worked as a design engineer in New York and Washington states. Recently, Martha has embarked on a project to write, with a co-author, a full life biography of John A. McCone. She believes his story is worth telling as a notable industrialist of California and a public servant during the 20th century.
In her free time, Martha and her husband, Jerry, spend time traveling, fly-fishing, cycling, hiking and visiting parks and open spaces from the inner city to the wilderness.
