Conserving Our Farmland Together

Farmland is an important, yet vulnerable landscape in Clallam County. Conserving and stewarding farmland across the North Olympic Peninsula is a major focus of North Olympic Land Trust. Throughout the summer of 2017, John Gussman of Doubleclick Productions created this beautiful film to reflect the importance of farmland conservation and how each of us as an individual can help to preserve the remaining farmland.

Visit the Lyre

The 280-acre Lyre Conservation Area is just 20 miles west of Port Angeles and features the estuary at the mouth of the Lyre River, streams, tidelands, kelp beds, and a 1/2 mile of shoreline along the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  It also includes a large diverse upland forest, and excellent habitat for salmon and a variety of migratory and resident birds and wildlife.
