Possession Sound Preserve has a way of wowing people. The wild and rugged site is the Land Trust’s newest nature preserve, which opened this summer.

2019 was a wildly successful year for local conservation: 10 properties, totaling 328 acres, were permanently protected on Whidbey and Camano islands.
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.
