The anticipated public opening of Possession Sound Preserve is now only a few months away thanks to the tireless efforts of volunteers, work crews, and Land Trust staff.
The 45-acre Possession Sound Preserve is the Land Trust’s newest nature preserve. South of Clinton on Whidbey Island, it has more than a half mile of beach that will be open to the public in the future.
Your support recently protected a truly special 100-acre landscape on South Whidbey owned by the Whidbey Institute. A dramatically expanded conservation easement added 41 acres and increased forest and wetland protection eight-fold!
The Land Trust plans for more than 1,300 native plants to go into the ground at the Silliman Preserve. It’s all part of the organization’s goal to enhance fish and wildlife habitat and help protect a functioning wetland system in the Maxwelton watershed.
Pat Powell has worked with conservation buyers before, but the call she received last spring was still a wonderful surprise. The caller was looking for help finding a noteworthy forest property on South Whidbey to purchase for preservation.
