Lower Nehalem Community Trust receives grant awards from local funders


Tillamook County Cultural Coalition awarded $1,520 for signs that will feature plant information in the Nehalem Teaching Trail at Alder Creek Center.
“We are grateful for the financial support that TCCC has given us over the course of the Teaching Trail project. This most recent grant will allow self-guided visitors to learn the plant names, characteristics, traditional uses by First Peoples, and other pertinent information,” says Doug Firstbrook, Project Leader.
Nehalem Bay Garden Club has also provided financial support several times over the years. The most recent gift of $500 will be used toward the much-needed repairs of the irrigation system in the Community Garden. Karen Matthews, Community Garden Coordinator says, “These funds will help to ensure the repairs can be done well in advance of the growing season. We are so fortunate to have the Garden Club support us, once again.”
LNCT’s mission is to preserve land and nurture conservation values in partnership with an engaged community in the Nehalem region of the Oregon Coast. Both the Nehalem Teaching Trail and the Community Garden provide educational experiences to our community. Additionally, the garden provides food security to North County Food Bank and Senior Center participants.
