Breakfast, butterflies, and the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula! Join us online at this spring’s community event, North Olympic Land Trust’s 14th annual Conservation Breakfast, where we will feature an individual who has dedicated his career to highlighting the beauty of our planet and the amazing creatures that we share our stunning corner of the world with.

Honoring John Gussman

A highlight of Conservation Breakfast each year 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. This year, the Land Trust is pleased to honor photographer John Gussman for his incredible images of the North Olympic Peninsula that are key to documenting and inspiring our community’s conservation efforts. Enjoy a few of John’s images above, check out his website, and join us for Conservation Breakfast as we celebrate John and his impact!

We’re saddened to share that Dr. Robert Michael Pyle will no longer be joining us at Conservation Breakfast. Dr. Pyle sent us this message from London, England: “I tested positive for COVID when taking my test for my flight home, so I am staying in a hotel at the airport until I test negative. I am feeling a little tired, but fortunately only seem to have light symptoms.”

This is disappointing news, but we are relieved that Dr. Pyle is doing well and we send him our biggest Pacific Northwestern well wishes. We are happy to note that Dr. Pyle’s portion of our Conservation Breakfast event will still take place, just moved to a later date, which we will determine once he’s safely stateside. For those who are registered for Conservation Breakfast, you’ll receive first notification and automatic registration for Dr. Pyle’s rescheduled presentation and Q&A–even more reason to register now if you haven’t already!

We are thrilled to host Conservation Breakfast tomorrow at 9:00AM, and we’re particularly excited to honor local photographer and videographer, John Gussman, with our annual ‘Out Standing in the Field’ award for his instrumental storytelling of the Peninsula.

We’re grateful for the continued community support, from volunteering to restore critical habitats to supporting us financially through donations and legacy gifts. Folks never have to pay to visit our public properties or attend Conservation Breakfast. However, if you are able to give a financial gift, please join your neighbors in supporting farms, fish, and forests by visiting our donate page!

Please let us know if we can look forward to having you join us for Conservation Breakfast. Your RSVP will allow us to send you email reminders with links, tips, and other fun information. We can’t wait to enjoy breakfast with you soon!

A BIG thanks to our sponsors:
