Who We Are
It’s easy to fall in love with Whidbey and Camano Islands. These islands are truly magical with spectacular vistas and landscapes, including farms, wetlands, forests, prairies and marine shorelines, all providing places for people to enjoy the out-of-doors as well as refuge for wildlife.
Who we are is very simple – we’re the people who’ve been protecting the best of Whidbey and Camano Islands since 1984. During this time, we have partnered with landowners and our island communities to permanently protect 90 properties totaling over 8,700 acres on Whidbey and Camano Islands. We’ve helped expand state parks, county open spaces and protected working farms and forests, shorelines and lakes, and many natural habitats.
We’re the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, an independent, nationally accredited, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
Guidance & Community
We are a member of the Land Trust Alliance (LTA), a national organization that works on behalf of land trusts to increase the pace and quality of land conservation by working to ensure the permanence of conservation. In early 2012, the Land Trust was awarded National Accreditation, a special status recognizing nonprofit excellence, awarded by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.
Appreciating What We Have
We are also committed to increasing the awareness and appreciation of Whidbey and Camano Islands, and accomplish this through publications, guided tours, stewardship work parties and special events. We believe that love of our islands is enhanced through positive experiences on the land – especially for younger generations. We hope you’ll join us at an upcoming Land Trust event or activity.
