Whatcom Land Trust is a non-profit primarily working in Whatcom County for over 35 years. With a growing human population and concerns around competing land uses, the Land Trust seeks to fill the needed gap in protecting and stewarding agricultural, wildlife habitat, park, and scenic lands for future generations. This presentation will scratch the surface of the Land Trust's local strategy in long-term land protection and stewardship in a changing climate, and share how you can get involved.
