More Exciting Conservation Projects Are Underway
The generous financial support of Land Trust members is accelerating our pace of land protection and habitat restoration in Island County. Among dozens of projects we’re working on, here are just a few we plan to protect in early 2020:
- A picturesque, historic farmstead in Ebey’s Reserve that provides an abundance of local food for the community.
- A North Whidbey property that will increase the size of a Land Trust preserve and provide incredible wildlife habitat with the bonus of a future parking lot and walking trail.
- Two adjacent Camano Island forested properties stretching from the shoreline of Saratoga Passage to an already protected county preserve. This will greatly expand an important wildlife habitat corridor.
- Forestland that will expand Fort Ebey State Park and provide additional habitat for wildlife and a future hiking trail.
- A large Central Whidbey shoreline and forested property, including a high-quality wetland that is home to an exciting array of native plants and animals, including a significant population of Western toads.
