Open house events on July 10-11 will show off North Olympic Land Trusts new office suite, introduce new executive director Greg Good and celebrate the nonprofit organizations progress in protecting special qualities of area lands.
Both events will be from 5:30-8 p.m. The new office suite is on the south end of the Morse Buildings second floor, 104 N. Laurel St., Suite 104, Port Angeles.
At 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 10, representatives of the Port Angeles Downtown Association and Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce will assist with the official office opening and unveiling of a mural depicting some of the local Land Trusts accomplishments.
The Friday, July 11, open house is part of the Second Weekend Art Event when local galleries feature artists and their work. Michael Anderson, the murals artist, will be available in his Anderson Gallery at 106 N. Laurel St. during both open house events. Until the mural is installed in the office a few days before the open house events, it can be viewed in the Anderson Gallery.
Photographs by Alan Bentsen on other walls of the new office suite portray some of the 60 properties the land trust protects.
The local land trust protects more than 1,500 acres in Clallam County with such special qualities as habitat for salmon and other wildlife, farmland, timberland, clean water and air, scenic vistas, open space and cultural heritage. Most are protected through a permanent legal agreement with each landowner that accompanies the property title regardless of future owners. The land trust assists in creating the agreements and takes responsibility for upholding them in perpetuity.
