Leave a Legacy for Conservation
Thank you to our many members who have already included Capitol Land Trust in their wills and estate
plans. Making a bequest is one of the simplest ways to leave a personal legacy that will last into
perpetuity. As part of a will, a charitable bequest specifies that a sum of money or percentage of an estate,
or a particular asset, be given to a named charitable organization upon the donor’s death. Retirement
plans are often considered the smartest assets to leave to charitable organizations. These assets are
unusual in that they are subject not only to estate tax, but to income tax when received by heirs. Both
taxes can be avoided when a qualified charitable organization such as Capitol Land Trust is named as the
beneficiary. For more details visit Capitol Land Trust’s website at

               Is Capitol Land Trust already in your will? Please let us know so we can thank you in your lifetime.

Native Pigeons Thrive at Eld Inlet Preserve                                             By Chris Maynard

During purchase arrangements for the newly
acquired property at the south end of Eld Inlet on         Band-tailed Pigeon, Patagioenas fasciata
Mud Bay, Capitol Land Trust staff learned of an
unexpected bonus: mineral deposits that attract
Band-tailed Pigeons.

Doves and pigeons are names used interchangea-
bly. By name, when the Passenger Pigeon became
extinct, Band-tailed Pigeons became the only
pigeon native to the United States north of Florida.
Those familiar city birds, Rock Pigeons, are smaller
and hail originally from the cliffs of Europe and
North Africa. The Band-tailed Pigeons seem to
share this fondness of heights by perching in the
tops of the tallest trees. A white stripe on the back
of their neck and a banded tail provide good ways

Summer Gala Breaks Fundraising Record!
Capitol Land Trust’s tenth annual Summer Gala was held Saturday August 14th at Helsing Junction Farm.
Folks from throughout the region gathered just outside Rochester to help us celebrate conservation in
southwest Washington and raise critical funds for Capitol Land Trust’s work. This year’s Gala was our
most successful fundraising event to date! Perhaps it was the beautiful setting; perhaps it was the
amazing local food and drink; or perhaps the people around here are simply incredibly generous and care
deeply about the future of our community. Whatever your reasons are for supporting the conservation of
southwest Washington’s essential natural areas and working lands, we thank you!

                               Farewell to Kathryn Moore
                               Our Conservation Projects Manager of four years, Kat Moore, is leaving us
                               for a position with the Washington State Recreation and Conservation
                               Office. We thank her for all her efforts and will greatly miss her!

                               “I’ve really enjoyed working at Capitol Land Trust; it’s been a wonderful
                               experience. I will miss working with my coworkers and colleagues, who
                               have become great friends and not just professional contacts. I think one
                               of the things I’ll miss the most about working at the Land Trust is working
                               with landowners and volunteers who are so committed to conservation.
                               During the process of working on a conservation easement or acquisition
                               you really get to know each landowner, their land and their conservation
                               ethic. I will miss that day-to-day contact with landowners and spending
                               time out in beautiful places. Thanks so much to everyone who made me
                               feel welcomed and appreciated, I hope our paths cross in the future!”
