North Olympic Land Trust's "Streamfest" scheduled


KONP Radio

(Port Angeles) -- Area tribal members, farmers, students and restaurant owners are teaming up to produce the salmon dinner for North Olympic Land Trust's StreamFest a week from Sunday. StreamFest will be on September 14th from 1-5 p.m., and is free, but the dinner requires a ticket. Tickets will be available through Thursday or until all 400 are taken at Port Book and News in Port Angeles and Pacific Mist Books in Sequim. They also will be at the Land Trust's booth at the PA Farmers Market Wednesday. Tickets are a minimum donation to the Land Trust of $15 per ticket. One child 10 or younger can eat at no additional charge if accompanied by an adult with a ticket. StreamFest is located on Ennis Arbor Farm, a 30-acre property with meadows, forests and about a quarter mile of Ennis Creek. An agreement with the Land Trust assures its permanent protection. Limited parking will be available at the Plaza Shopping Center and more, along Del Guzzi Drive, just east of the shopping center. Clallam Transit's trolley will shuttle between parking areas and StreamFest throughout the event. Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe members are making preparations for the traditional open-fire cooking of the fish they will donate. Although they had hoped to cook the fish at the StreamFest site, they now plan to cook on the Lower Elwha Klallams' beach and transport the fish in time for the 1:30-3:30 p.m. dinner. PA Farmers Market food producers plan to have plenty of fresh corn, potatoes and salad vegetables to donate for the dinner. Neil Conklin and Bella Italia staff members will work with culinary arts students to transform the raw ingredients into corn on the cob with chipotle/chive butter, herb-roasted potatoes, and Farmers Market Salad. Volunteers have been picking several varieties of blackberries, from Ennis Arbor Farm and the berry patches of other Land Trust supporters. Staff at the Bushwhacker restaurant are ready to assemble enough cobbler for 500 people. Extra cobbler, as well as home-made apple cider, Olympic Springs water, and soft drinks, can be purchased at StreamFest. Proceeds from the salmon dinner and other food sales will support North Olympic Land Trust's Conservation Opportunity Fund. The Fund was established to cover some of the expenses related to establishing permanant agreements for protecting such special qualities of land as habitat for fish and other wildlife, scenic values, farming and sustainable forests. Such agreements now protect 834 acres in Clallam County. Donations beyond the cost of the dinner and other food are tax-deductible and entitle donors to membership in the non-profit organization.
