THE CAMPAIGN TO
SAVE MOUNT GRANT
A remarkable opportunity has presented itself to the San Juan Island community that, if successful, will permanently protect one of the island’s most valuable gems. Native island habitat, miles of trails, and unmatched, 360-degree panoramic views accessible to all, are what Mount Grant Preserve offers.
We have satisfied the terms of a $350,000 challenge grant that was offered to help us complete the Campaign to Save Vendovi Island. Thanks to almost 500 families and our original benefactor, we have extinguished the $3.4 million bridge loan required to purchase the island. Together, our efforts will allow future generations to appreciate Vendovi’s natural diversity, an example of what once existed throughout the entire San Juan archipelago.
Founded in 1979, the San Juan Preservation Trust is a nationally-accredited private, non-profit and membership-based land trust dedicated to helping people and communities conserve land in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. The Preservation Trust has permanently protected more than 280 properties, 40 miles of shoreline, 21 miles of trails and more than 15,000 acres on 20 islands, including land now managed as public parks, nature preserves, wildlife habitat, and working farms and forests.
