Harry’s Forest Tour a Huge Success!
We had such a tremendous response to our tour of the private forest on April 4, that we had to add another time slot. Luckily, Harry Case was willing to do another tour, so we were able to accommodate over 40 people!
Harry has lovingly managed his 176-acre forest for over 60 years. In 2008 he permanently protected it for future generations by donating a conservation easement to the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. This forest is located near both Putney and Saratoga Woods. Read his story here. And read the story on the tour from The Herald.

Whidbey Reads – Sno-Isle Libraries’ annual reading program to bring Whidbey Island residents together to read and discuss books — is in its final week. Crow Planet by Lyanda Lynn Haupt is the chosen book for this year. The author uses her study of crows in an urban setting to point out and discuss concerns about nature and our place in it.
The Land Trust kicked off the program with tours of several preserved sites on Whidbey on March 3rd. Board member Dyanne Sheldon continues our involvement by facilitating a discussion on April 23 about how this writer’s reflections on urban crows relate to our lives on Whidbey. Fellow board member, Leigh Smith, joins her in the discussion along with Frances Wood and Donna Keeler.
Join the discussion and the fun by picking up your copy of Crow Planet from your local library. Read here for a complete schedule of events.
