Mary Earhart Bawden

Mary Earhart Bawden, a long-time Orcas Island resident, left a generous cash bequest in her will to build up the San Juan Preservation Trust’s Acquisition Fund. Mary’s gift gave the Preservation Trust’s board of trustees the courage — and the seed money needed — to undertake the ambitious $18.5 million Turtleback Mountain campaign on Mary’s beloved Orcas Island.

Thank you Mary! Your legacy benefits thousands each year who hike the trails of Turtleback Mountain Preserve.
