Lower Nehalem Community Trust

Lower Nehalem Community Trust on the Oregon Coast protects over 300 acres of land including a wetlands buffer for a critical estuary habitat. They asked Ruby Slipper to show their precious lands and convey the passion behind their mission.

Inspirational and informative! Lower Nehalem Community Trust is a small non-profit with big heart. They are charged with preserving land, nurturing conservation values, and working with an engaged community in the Nehalem region of the Oregon Coast. Their mission is wide-reaching and they needed an easy-to-navigate website to educate, inspire, and activate the community.

“No amount of praise or thanks or singing at the top of my lungs while tap dancing a lovely Irish jig could ever be equal to all the spirit and talent and acumen you brought to us, our work together, our collaboration, our website.”

Highlighting the stories of the land protected by the Trust, we designed the site around the Trust’s three-pillar commitment to Community, Conservation, and Education. Ruby Slipper had the honor of working with Dale, their visionary director. Rob, a Portland rock star, who helmed memberships and donations. Mary, the office manager with a keen eye for design, and Brenda Cornett of BrandVIVA created the beautiful logo and brand identity.

A crown jewel of the Trust is Alder Creek Farm. Previously a dairy farm, now 4 acres are devoted to the community garden, greenhouse, and ethnobotanical trail — run by seasoned volunteers. The other 50 acres is a glorious wildlife sanctuary.
