Conservation Partners

We accomplish more when we work together.

Jefferson Land Trust collaborates with many local and state governments, agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to acquire, restore and steward special lands in Jefferson County.

For example, in 2001, when local salmon runs were in dangerous decline, we convened the “Chumsortium,” a partnership that meets each month to discuss protection, restoration, funding and education related to salmon habitat. Salmon runs are now rebounding in record numbers. The Chumsortium received a 2001 Environmental Achievement Award from the Hood Canal Coordinating Council. Many of the Chumsortium partners also participate in the Snow Creek and Salmon Creek Technical Advisory Group, which received a 2005 Organization of the Year Award from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
