At 132 acres, this farm will mark our communityâs largest farmland conservation project to date.

The 2017-2021 Strategic Plan lays out a path for action and establishes the foundation for the Land Trustâs future work to support and inspire balanced land use and responsible stewardship across the North Olympic Peninsula via three core strategies.
Conserving Our Farmland Together
Farmland is an important, yet vulnerable landscape in Clallam County. Conserving and stewarding farmland across the North Olympic Peninsula is a major focus of North Olympic Land Trust. Throughout the summer of 2017, John Gussman of Doubleclick Productions created this beautiful film to reflect the importance of farmland conservation and how each of us as an individual can help to preserve the remaining farmland.
Visit the Lyre
The 280-acre Lyre Conservation AreaÂ is just 20 miles west of Port AngelesÂ and features the estuary at the mouth of the Lyre River, streams, tidelands, kelp beds, and a 1/2 mile of shoreline along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Â It also includes a large diverse upland forest, and excellent habitat for salmon and a variety of migratory and resident birds and wildlife.
The Lyre Conservation Area is is an ideal sport for bird and wildlife viewing, surfing, picnicking, and beach walking.
Conserve with Wine
