Eldridge Farm Acquisition
- Funded in 2007
Whatcom County will use this grant to acquire development rights on two adjacent farms, which are predominately grass-based livestock agriculture. Totaling 103 acres, the Joneli and Dickson farms will help Whatcom County curb the loss of agricultural lands. The primary benefit of the proposed project is to ensure the permanent preservation and maintenance of a large block of rural land for agricultural and open space. Whatcom County will contribute $312,768 from conservation futures.
