Jefferson Land Trust partnered with The Trust for Public Land and North Olympic Land Trust to study the economic value of the conserved farms, forests, trails, and parks in Jefferson, Clallam, and Kitsap counties. A special report entitled, “The economic benefits of conserved lands, trails, and parks on the North Olympic Peninsula” was published in January 2021. The report finds that conserved lands are key economic drivers that generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic benefits each year. Download the Report.
