||To conserve lands that sustain the communities of Clallam County.
||The community’s land base is the bedrock of our culture, our economy, our homes and our daily lives. We all depend on this land. We make our livings and live our lives on this land. We know that by conserving land for farms, fish and forests, it will pay direct dividends back to our own quality of life.
The Land Trust’s land ethic supports three categories of value: habitat, resources and aesthetics.
Habitat: Maintenance of healthy habitat for a diversity of plants and animals, including humans.
Resources: Sustainable harvest of food, fish and trees.
Aesthetics: The power of nature to refresh and delight.
When in balance, these three values are mutually supportive and enhance each other. We do not have to pick one over the others, and in fact should not. With proper stewardship, all three support each other and our community.
