In February, the month of love, your gift will double for Whatcom Land Trust.  A local group of conservationists have pooled their resources to create a challenge fund of $30,000. 

 Every dollar you give in February (up to $30k) will be paired with one in the challenge fund, doubling WLT’s ability to protect the special places of Whatcom County—parks, fish and wildlife habitat, farms, and working forests.


 Love is a verb!  Love your Whatcom nature with a gift to Whatcom Land Trust.  Invest in your relationship with Home. Nobody else will love it like you do.
