This yearly community gathering is an opportunity to hear about upcoming projects, recent successes, and challenges surrounding local land conservation. In addition to providing you with an organizational update, you’re encouraged to talk with Land Trust staff, Board and committee members; ask questions; share ideas; and provide feedback on the focus and direction of ongoing conservation efforts.
We’re excited to host Bob Boekelheide as this year’s keynote speaker. Boekelheide is the former director of the Dungeness River Audobon Center and taught science and math in Washington public schools for 13 years. He is the Bird Count Chair for Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, and has compiled the annual Sequim-Dungeness Christmas Bird Count and the Clallam County Migratory Bird Count for over 20 years, along with helping to organize several other citizen-science projects on the north Olympic Peninsula. Boekelheide will be prsenting about “Nesting Birds of the Lower Dungeness River Riparian Forest and Marshlands.”
Guest also are invited to join the Land Trust team in honoring this year’s Gary Colley Legacy Award recipient. This annual award is presented to those who have proven instrumental to the Land Trust’s continual growth and evolution.
