Farmland Preservation protects valuable farmland and habitat for recreationally important animals, like salmon, birds, deer, and elk. These projects allow families to continue farming the land they have worked on for generations, and provide Washingtonians with healthy local food and a diverse economy. WWRP is the only source of farmland preservation funding in the state budget.
The North Olympic Land Trust will use this grant to purchase a farmland conservation easement on approximently 104 acres of prime farmland adjacent to the Dungeness Creamery. The primary benefit of this project is the preservation of working farmland.
