Whatcom Land Trust invites you to attend this breakfast event to celebrate business champions for land conservation, and the strong relationship between the conservation, recreation, agricultural and business communities. Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased online at whatcomlandtrust.org and by calling 360-650-9470.
This year’s honoree and recipient of the Land Trust’s 2019 Bob Keller Leadership Award is The Conservation Alliance, a consortium of outdoor companies working to protect threatened wild places nationwide for their habitat and recreational values. They collaborate to address global environmental issues by acting locally through grassroots support of local citizen action and initiatives, and by focusing on achieving tangible results.
In recognition, Whatcom Land Trust honors the Conservation Alliance for its financial support of our successful Skookum Creek acquisition to permanently protect wildlife habitat, watershed health, climate resilience and recreational access.
Our keynote speaker will be Hilary Franz, Commissioner of Public Lands for Washington State. Event proceeds further Whatcom Land Trust’s goals to preserve, protect, and engage the community in Whatcom’s special places.
