Forestland Preservation grants help improve opportunities for forest management activity and improve the long-term growth and harvest of timber. These projects help protect many different kinds of forests, including, but not limited to, large-scale industrial forests, small private landowner forests, community forests, and tribally - or publicly-owned and managed forests.
The Whidbey Camano Land Trust will use this funding to place a perpetual working forest conservation easement on approximately 115 acres of Kristoferson Farm on Camano Island. A total of nine development rights will be acquired. The primary benefit of this project is the preservation of working forestland.
