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.

Happy #wildlifewednesday!

A creature of the night, the gumboot chiton (largest chiton in the world) is more active this time of year due to its preference to feed in the dark.

Chitons don't have eyes or tentacles like many marine creatures, but their shells are equipped with light-sensitive organs.

As many of us gripe about the lack of sunlight, it is nice to know that there are creatures celebrating the darkness!
