Nature is our Favorite Subject
We’re passionate about sharing our knowledge of the lands and waters we protect with our members. Offering fun, outdoor educational opportunities is a priority for us. They help us deepen the connection to the properties we protect. We’ve been offering guided tours to our members for many years. These tours are really popular and fill up quickly. So, we’re working to increase the number we can offer.
Along with our stellar stewardship staff, we also call on experts to share their knowledge in specific fields. Sometimes, the focus is on the critical conservation values of a property we’ve protected thanks to the annual financial support of our members. Other times, the land serves as a backdrop for learning more about geology, fungi, moss, salmon, birds, marine environment, stars, archaeology, rare prairie plants, and more.
We also provide learning opportunities on our protected properties by providing engaging interpretive panels located along trails and information at our numerous kiosks. Among the many places we’ve protected where you can presently enjoy learning on the land are our Admiralty Inlet and Crockett Lake preserves, located south of Coupeville, and at our Waterman Preserve near Clinton.
If you’re not a Land Trust member and want to participate in these fun, educational activities, join us by donating today! Not only will be actively helping to keep our islands naturally beautiful and healthy for future generations, but you will also receive invitations to our popular guided tours.
