Gabe Epperson, conservation director of Whatcom Land Trust, will provide an update on the Trust to those attending his presentation at the Sunday Forum of Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship on December 11, 2016 at 9:15 a.m. He also will elicit feedback from the group to prioritize areas in the county that will focus on new acquisition, conservation and restoration projects. A new Land Conservation Plan will be the culmination of this process.
The mission of Whatcom Land Trust, a nonprofit organization started in 1984, is to preserve and protect wildlife habitat, scenic, agricultural and open-space lands in Whatcom County for future generations by securing interests in land and promoting land stewardship. We partner with local governments in Whatcom County, state agencies, tribes and other organizations to help us plan and implement critical land conservation projects.
