Join us for the return of the 15th annual North Olympic Land Trust Conservation Breakfast!

Friday, April 21st – 10 am

At the end of December, heavy rain quickly melted the snow and ice that had accumulated during a recent storm. In just a few days, the Dungeness River swelled from a discharge of 93 cubic feet per second, to 2,300 cubic feet per second. Thanks to the setback of two miles of levee over the last few years, these waters were able spread out and naturally meandered through nearly 200 acres of floodplain that had been disconnected from the river since the 1960’s – instantly creating prime salmon habitat.

This year, our featured speakers are a panel of leaders from the ongoing floodplain restoration on the lower Dungeness River. Moderated by Land Trust Executive Director Tom Sanford, representatives from Clallam County and the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe Natural Resources Department will elaborate on the project, the collaborations that made it happen, and what we have learned so far about how the river, fish, and wildlife are using this floodplain.

A highlight of Conservation Breakfast is honoring a local citizen or group with the Land Trust’s Out Standing in the Field Award. This award recognizes exemplary locals making big differences in our community for conservation. Our 2023 awardee will be announced at Conservation Breakfast!

This yearly event is our community’s largest celebration of local land conservation, bringing together community members and partners from across Clallam County. Conservation Breakfast is the perfect opportunity to learn more about your local land trust, get involved, as well as network and deepen your community connections. We’ll share about recent land conservation successes, challenges, and exciting projects underway.
