Jim & Betty Doerksen
“Our most favorite memory is the day we signed and sealed the Life Estate Agreement with LandPaths. That was the day we knew that our property would be preserved and used as a nature center for kids and adults in perpetuity.” -Betty Doerksen
The hours of time that Jim and Betty have devoted to LandPaths cannot be counted, and their graciousness and desire to share their beautiful piece of land is remarkable. Jim and Betty are a testament to community centered, heart driven, and nature loving people we at LandPaths are so lucky to keep company with. We are grateful for their abiding generosity and support of our work. Thank you Jim and Betty!
Sea to Bohemia, First Trek of 2015, August, 7-8-9
This is a truly unique experience for those wanting to spend three days traversing the Coastal Ridges eastward from Shell Beach. With access to both public and private lands, the group will walk, eat locally, ‘comfy camp’ each of two nights and traverse roughly 17 miles over the course of three days. All camping gear will be shuttled between the trailhead on the coast, overnight stays and final destination near Camp Meeker. Participants will carry a knapsack with water and other day-hike essentials. All food, spirits and use fees and are included in the cost of this trip. LandPaths heartily encourages those for whom cost is a barrier to apply for the limited number of work-trade scholarships available. As a community institution LandPaths is committed to helping people experience the breadth of our programming even if cost seems prohibitive! Click here to register.
