Siebert Creek Conservation Area
Siebert Creek Conservation Area is located on the traditional and ancestral lands of the indigenous people who have lived on the North Olympic Peninsula since time immemorial, who continue to lead in environmental stewardship. Read our full Land Acknowledgement here.
Siebert Creek Conservation Area is a 38.5 acre parcel along Siebert Creek between Port Angeles and Sequim. Volunteers have constructed new trails, trailheads, and a picnic area to help our community enjoy this area. In addition, volunteers have removed acres of scotch broom and planted several hundred native trees and shrubs to enhance the fish and wildlife habitat here. Partners who have helped to make this project happen include the Sequim Community Foundation, Sound Community Bank, Lazy J Tree Farm, Merrill & Ring, Lakeside Gravel, and Clallam Conservation District.
A Decade of Conservation
Siebert Creek watershed has been a focal point for community-based restoration and habitat protection over the last decade. Conservation work was started in 2002 by Pacific Woodrush, a local non-profit organization, with the purchase of Siebert Creek Conservation Area, and was continued by North Olympic Land Trust with the completion of conservation easements on 3 private properties and the addition of 4.5 acres to the Siebert Creek Conservation Area. Currently there are 118 acres of conservation land protecting the lower 2 miles of the creek. Land protection on Siebert Creek has been made possible by grant funding from the Salmon Recovery Funding Board, North Olympic Peninsula Lead Entity, and from generous donations by the landowners and by North Olympic Land Trust members and supporters.
