Who We Are


It’s easy to fall in love with Whidbey and Camano Islands. These islands are truly magical with spectacular vistas and landscapes, including farms, wetlands, forests, prairies and marine shorelines, all providing places for people to enjoy the outdoors as well as refuge for wildlife.

Who we are is very simple – we’re the people who’ve been protecting the best of Whidbey and Camano Islands since 1984. During this time, we have partnered with landowners and our island communities to permanently protect important properties on Whidbey and Camano Islands. We’ve helped expand state parks, create county open spaces, and protect working farms and forests, shorelines and lakes, and many natural habitats.

We’re the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, an independent, nationally accredited, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Guidance & Community

We are a member of the Land Trust Alliance (LTA), a national organization that works on behalf of land trusts to increase the pace and quality of land conservation by working to ensure the permanence of conservation. In early 2012 and again in 2017, the Land Trust was awarded National Accreditation, a special status recognizing nonprofit excellence, awarded by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.

Appreciating What We Have

We are also committed to increasing the awareness and appreciation of Whidbey and Camano Islands, and accomplish this through publications, guided tours, stewardship work parties and special events. We believe that love of our islands is enhanced through positive experiences on the land – especially for younger generations. We hope you’ll join us at an upcoming Land Trust event or activity.
