Our San Juan Islands

Conserve now. Enjoy forever.

The San Juan Preservation Trust works with our local communities and people like you to permanently conserve and care for special places throughout the San Juan Islands.

Together with our landowner partners, the Preservation Trust—a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization—has permanently protected more than 300 properties, 45 miles of shoreline, 27 miles of trails and 18,000 acres on 20 islands.

Perhaps you've heard in recent news that Zylstra Lake Preserve is opening to the public this weekend?

Indeed, it is. Our partners at the Land Bank, namely Doug McCutchen, Charlie Behnke, and Kayla Seaforth have been working extra hard on preparing the preserve for public access and they made it all happen just in time for Public Lands Day (Saturday, Sept 26th)!

If you plan to visit the preserve, please watch this video and share it with your friends— we hope that it will answer some questions.

For those of you who are not planning to visit any time soon, we hope that this virtual tour serves as a portal to the natural beauty and unique habitats that this preserve has to offer.

Lincoln Borman, Director of the Land Bank, and Angela Anderson, Executive Director of the Preservation Trust, introduce the new trail...
