Bob Keller Business Conservation Leadership Award

Whatcom Land Trust celebrates the strong relationship between conservation, recreation, agriculture and business, and recognizes our business supporters whose collective investment benefits land conservation and stewardship in our community. Working together, we contribute to our economic well-being and help to define our community’s high quality of life.

Each year since 2017 Whatcom Land Trust recognizes a noteworthy business with a leadership award named for former Land Trust board member Bob Keller. Past recipients include Superfeet, Coldstream Farms, and The Conservation Alliance. 2020’s award went to Alcoa Intalco Works in recognition of its robust employee volunteer program that has contributed thousands of field hours to benefit not only Whatcom Land Trust, but our entire local nonprofit community, and for its financial support through the Alcoa Foundation to protect Whatcom’s special places. Thank you for your support!
