Why Give

In our first 27 years, the North Olympic Land Trust has permanently conserved over 3,300 acres across Clallam County, including:

  • more than 520 acres of local farmland,
  • 12 miles of steam and river habitat,
  • over a mile of shoreline along the Strait of Juan de Fuca,
  • more than 1,800 acres of forest land, including 460 acres of working forests, and
  • over 650 acres of land open for public recreation.

The Land Trust is an opportunity to invest in the community’s quality of life through investing in its land base. This includes the ability to leave a truly lasting legacy, the opportunity to partner with your neighbors to conserve the places we value, and the means to support private stewardship while giving back to the community.

Just since 2007, the Land Trust has worked with willing landowners to conserve over 14.5 million dollars’ worth of property across Clallam County.  For every unrestricted dollar invested by supporters to run the Land Trust, we have leveraged over $16 of land conservation.

Thanks to your continued and valued investment in conservation, we will continue to work on your behalf ensuring that the reasons we love to live and play on the North Olympic Peninsula remain a lasting legacy for the future.
