Giving Tuesday is November 28th!

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on November 28, 2023, and throughout the year.

Land is a finite and precious resource that has and always will be the foundation of our culture, economy, and quality of life in Clallam County. With the future of this place in mind, our caring community formed North Olympic Land Trust in 1990.

Intentional and thoughtful action from people like you results in meaningful change. Since its creation, the Land Trust has worked with local governments, local sovereign Tribes, individuals, organizations, businesses, and many others to conserve lands across the region. This includes fish habitat on the Elwha River, prime farmland in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, maturing forests near Forks, and public access along the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

What can you do to support your community and North Olympic Land Trust this GivingTuesday and beyond? Here are a few ideas:

  • Volunteer with us. We offer a variety of volunteer experiences, from helping out in the office to supporting events to helping care for the land. Fill out our volunteer form and we can help find a good fit for you!
  • Eat Local First. Supporting local businesses and growers helps create a strong local food system and economy, which is important for a vibrant future on the Olympic Peninsula.
  • Donate. Funds generously donated by our community make our work possible.
  • Plant native plants at home to create microhabitats, you can even stop by our office and pick up a free packet of native prairie seeds!
  • Vote. (Why we list voting and remain nonpartisan.)

This work isn’t just conserving land; it’s also conserving the ways of life our community has chosen to protect. Together we can achieve a resilient future for the landscapes and people of this place.
