ANNOUNCING THIS YEAR’S WINNER(S)
At the Preservation Trust’s annual meeting, Trustee Keith Wentworth presented our 2016 Volunteer of the Year award. It went not to a single individual, but to the entire Campaign for Mount Grant Steering Committee. This hardworking group can’t rest on its laurels just yet, though—there’s still more to do.
A VERY SPECIAL PLACE –
GO SEE FOR YOURSELF
Mount Grant is a very special place on San Juan Island. The Preserve is open daily to hikers. Driving access to the summit will be open, weather permitting, from noon to 6 pm on June 19, and then each Sunday beginning July 3. If you have yet to see what all the excitement is about, take a drive or a hike and see for yourself!
Join our Stewardship team for the 2016 Fieldwork Fridays. From beach clean-up to trail construction to invasive species removal to painting a caretaker house, these fieldwork days are necessary to our stewardship work, productive, and FUN! Meet like-minded folks and visit preserves on outer islands.
