Hold on for another exciting conservation success ride in 2019. Here’s a sneak preview of what we’re working on for you:
In 2018, 10 properties, totaling 485 acres, were permanently protected throughout Whidbey and Camano islands. Here’s a summary of what you helped accomplish last year.
Share your favorite outdoor images! The Land Trust’s annual photo contest is underway and photo submissions are being accepted.
The Land Trust recently welcomed three new members to its board of directors. Janet Hall of Freeland and Jay Adams and Michael McGarry of Coupeville joined the board in January.
Saying the word “coyote” is tricky for 2½ -year-old Savanna Tassie. But she knows what a coyote is. That’s why she howls when she looks at the interpretive panel that shows a painting of a coyote and other wildlife at Admiralty Inlet Preserve.
If trees could talk, one can only imagine what those on Don and Jan Allens’ land would say. For more than a half century, the Allens have gently tended their wooded Whidbey Island property, helping a lush forest remain standing.
Lidabeth Hicks has lived on her property for 67 years. She’s developed such a love for the wildlife on her land that she donated a conservation easement to the Land Trust that prohibits the forest from ever being cut down.
Before Bob Wilken lowered his drip torch to ignite some dry grass at the Admiralty Inlet Natural Area Preserve, the husky, bearded man did something he’s found essential when conducting controlled prairie burns. He blew bubbles.
Some things never change. Robert Bishop realized that on a recent sunny afternoon when he found himself covered in sweat and green alfalfa dust after loading bales of hay into a pickup driven by his older brother, Malcolm.
Cyclists of all levels got a chance to soak in the scenery while actively enjoying the outdoors during the Whidbey Camano Land Trust’s second annual Sea, Trees, & Pie Bike Ride July 23.
