February 7th Whatcom Land Trust with Gabe Epperson

For over 30 years the Whatcom Land Trust has been working to protect critical wildlife habitat, farms and recreational lands, by securing ownership interest in properties and promoting stewardship. As part of the 30 year anniversary, the Land Trust has recently completed a Land Conservation Plan which outlines geographic focal areas throughout the County and identifies strategies to accomplish its Mission. Gabe will be presenting an overview of the new Plan and highlighting a few areas in the County that he is currently working to protect critical habitat
