Mid Valley Farm is Protected Forever!

In fall of last year, we shared the Land Trust’s goal to conserve two farmlands in Dungeness. Today, we’re excited to share some news – Mid Valley Farm is officially protected forever!

This was a community effort. Thank you for supporting conservation and protecting this place we love! Mid Valley Farm is the 24th farm that the Land Trust has helped to protect. This conservation easement protects 56 acres between Sequim-Dungeness Way and Evans Road as farmland forever.

Clallam County farms are at a heightened risk of disappearing. Responding to the need to protect local farms–further underscored by a collective call to action from the community–the Land Trust’s Board has set a goal to double the pace of farmland conservation over the next ten years while continuing to meet habitat conservation goals. The conservation of Mid Valley Farm is a strategic start to this commitment.

As the conservation of Mid Valley Farm highlights, the collective power of our community can translate into land and waterways being protected forever.
