Deadline nears for courthouse listings

The deadline is Friday, Jan. 18, for donors wanting to reserve listings on North Olympic Land Trust’s next Clallam County Courthouse plaque supporting protection of the area’s special qualities.

Donations support the work of the land trust, a local nonprofit organization, which protects habitat for salmon and other wildlife, farmland, sustainable commercial timberland, clean water and air, scenic vistas, open space and cultural heritage. All donations are tax deductible.

Each $100 contribution qualifies its donors for one line on the plaque. They may list themselves to show support for the land trust’s work or list others they want to honor or memorialize.

The first plaque was installed last February when the land trust gave its "Elwha Return" artwork to the citizens of Clallam County and county officials arranged for its display in the courthouse’s entry area facing Fourth Street in Port Angeles. Plaques with donor listings are on the wall of the corridor west of the artwork. A plaque describing the artwork hangs below it, just east of the elevator.

Three local artists, Clark Mundy, Darrell Charles Jr. and Al Charles Jr., donated the artwork to the land trust to help the organization raise funds for its work and to celebrate partnerships among individuals and groups, including local governments and tribes, nonprofit organizations such as the land trust and businesses in helping protect the area’s special qualities.

Donations can be made through northolympiclandtrust.org or the land trust’s office, 104 N. Laurel St., Suite 114, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

The local land trust has protected more than 1,500 acres in Clallam County, mostly through individualized legal agreements with property owners who continue to own the land until they sell it or bequeath it to heirs. The land trust takes responsibility for upholding the agreements in perpetuity. More information about the organization’s services is available by calling 417-1815.
