The San Juan Preservation Trust pursues its mission by protecting island land, caring for island land, and providing the educational, administrative and fundraising support needed to protect and care for island land.
Voluntary conservation of private lands is playing an extremely important role in shaping the future of the San Juan Islands. As the popularity of these islands continues to feed development pressures, and as reduced funding forces our local, state and federal land agencies to consider reducing public services and shedding or closing publicly-owned properties, private conservation will be essential to the long-term health, beauty and accessibility of our islands.
The San Juan Preservation Trust’s stewardship activities include property management, monitoring of our conservation interests, and restoration of damaged or neglected lands. We also provide assistance to private landowners to help them effectively care for their own land.
