Please note that current Preservation Trust members have first priority for these events and outings. Not a member? Not a problem! You can join now!
Questions regarding any of our outings can be directed to Bella French , Outreach & Membership Manager, at (360) 378-2461 or mailto:email@example.com
Join us on Saturday May 7 for the San Juan Preservation Trust's 37th Annual Member Meeting. We're pleased to announce that local historian Mike Vouri will be our guest presenter. Vouri is an author and former Chief of Interpretation and Historian for San Juan Island National Historical Park. His presentation will provide a fascinating glimpse into the early days of island life.
