March 31, 2015 – The 6th Annual Conservation Breakfast on March 20th was a tremendous success. Thank you to everyone that was able to join us as we celebrated land conservation on the North Olympic Peninsula, and as we honored Jefferson Land Trust with our 2nd ‘Out Standing In The Field’ Award.
It was a full-house at the Red Lion for the breakfast and the breakfast grossed over $20,000 in support of land conservation in our area. Special thanks to the breakfast’s generous sponsors – First Federal, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Merrill & Ring, Family Medicine of Port Angeles, John L. Scott Real Estate, Wind Rose Cellars, Zenovic & Associates and Ennis Arbor Farm – as their support covered 100% of the event’s expenses.
As we move deeper into 2015, we turn our attention to some very exciting land protection opportunities. These include efforts to conserve 200 acres of priceless farmland north of Sequim and a beautiful farm with large forestlands along Salt Creek. Also, promising new land protection opportunities are developing along the Elwha River between Olympic National Park and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Our recently acquired Lyre Conservation Area is being prepped for public day use. In the meantime, you can sign up for a private tour of the property. We are currently offering these about twice a month and if you are interested, please contact us directly.
Finally, many of you told us after the Conservation Breakfast how much you enjoyed John Gussman’s video of the Lyre Conservation area. If you’re interested in sharing the video of the Lyre Conservation Area with friends we encourage you do so. The video can be found on the homepage of this website and below.
