BE PART OF SOMETHING
FUN AND WORTHWHILE!
This summer, why not sign up for a work party on one of our preserves? Get dirt under your nails, sweat a little, meet new people and care for special island places! Upcoming field work parties are on Orcas, Shaw, San Juan and other islands. Check out our calendar of activities and invite yourself along.
The owner of an Anacortes bed & breakfast establishment has agreed to pay a $100,000 settlement for illegally clear-cutting a waterfront nature preserve on Fidalgo Island. The nature preserve, which is owned by the San Juan Preservation Trust, is situated on a steep slope between the b&b and the shoreline.
