The Campaign to Save Vendovi Island
The acquisition of Vendovi Island in December 2010 is arguably the most significant conservation effort undertaken in the history of the Preservation Trust. In the Fall of 2010, Vendovi was put up for sale at auction. At stake was a 217-acre, virtually untouched island with nearly three miles of shoreline.

Thanks to the 104 households who participated in GiveBIG to protect the San Juan Islands, and thanks to The Seattle Foundation for hosting such a successful fundraising drive.
