Island Dispatch | December 2016


A Letter from Tim

“People protect what they love.” – Jacques Cousteau

In 2016, I bought a rowboat. I now travel in my 14-foot Whitehall whenever I can. In addition to enjoying the exercise, I’ve found that the act of pulling oars through saltwater reconnects me with my childhood love for this place.

In late September, following a vigorous dinner conversation on an outer island, I said farewell to my hosts—members of our Tiptop League—and pushed my little boat into a moonless, ink-black night. Still energized by the discussion, my thoughts drifted towards that ubiquitous Jacques Cousteau quote (above). After decades of essentially locking up land (“collecting museum pieces,” someone said), the Preservation Trust is now committed to connecting people with our places. The logic is pretty simple: Despite the breakneck pace of our acquisition program, the day will come when there are fewer priority properties left to protect. To ensure that the places we are protecting today are cared for in perpetuity, it will be crucial for islanders to appreciate that land conservation is essential to their quality of life.

Or, to paraphrase Cousteau, people won’t protect what they don’t know.

As I continued to row home in the dark stillness of that evening, a loud blast of air from the water on my port side startled me out of my thoughts. I cast a flashlight in the direction of the noise and there, reflected in the beam just beyond the tip of my oar, were a dozen troubled eyes. A family of harbor seals had swum out to investigate me. As we silently contemplated each other, it occurred to me that these beautiful animals had just launched their mission from a remote beach that the Preservation Trust had recently purchased specifically to provide them with a safe sanctuary.

You’re going to hear more in the coming year about our efforts to connect people with the places that you, as a member of the Preservation Trust, have helped to conserve. If it is true that people protect what they love, then my wish for 2017 is that you, too, will fall in love with a family of harbor seals. Just like the family I met on that magical evening.

This is a good time to be a member of the San Juan Preservation Trust.

With gratitude from the islands,
Tim Seifert
Executive Director



This $4.2-million effort, initiated in 2015, continues to capture the enthusiasm of the San Juan Island community. The summit of Mount Grant has become a mecca for a diverse and appreciative constituency, from senior citizens, young children and other mobility-challenged visitors to star gazers, bird watchers, and tourists referred by local inns and hotels. With a $1.5 million contribution from the citizens of San Juan County (through the County’s Land Bank), the Preservation Trust is now just $320,000 away from meeting its $2.7-million private fundraising commitment to the project. The views from the top speak for themselves, but with recent trail and road improvements (along with the steady healing of development scars), it is clear that Mount Grant will one day be considered one of the jewels of our islands. In the meantime, the preserve is open daily for hikers, and the summit will be accessible to vehicles on a limited basis (visit for dates).


As the only property ever to satisfy every single public benefit criteria on the Preservation Trust’s project selection checklist, Zylstra Lake on San Juan Island has long been among our highest priority properties for protection. In addition to providing important habitat and open space, this property also controls valuable senior water rights that could be used to serve a number of exciting projects (including, we hope, the restoration of salmon and cutthroat trout runs in False Bay Creek).

San Juan Islanders are particularly excited about Zylstra’s recreational potential. Currently there is no public lake access anywhere on the island, so our success could allow local families to enjoy sailing, canoeing, fishing, and—perhaps most essential for an island community—a safe place to teach their children to swim.

In response to an offer from a developer intending to create a housing development around the lake, the Preservation Trust and the County Land Bank stepped up in December 2015 to purchase the 313-acre property for $3 million. We then spent much of the first half of 2016 preparing state and federal grant applications, and anticipate receiving results in early 2017. Depending upon our success, we will then determine whether a private fundraising effort will be necessary. To make the first of three $900,000 annual payments that we owe to the seller, we placed a conservation easement on a 30-acre portion of the property (including an old farmhouse and agricultural structures) and sold it in September to a family that will harbor a nonprofit animal sanctuary (


Lacking a public road system, Henry Island is necessarily a pedestrian island that relies on its trails. To traverse the H-shaped island, Henry residents have no choice but to use the trail across the island’s isthmus (the crossbar in the H). Alarmed by the threat of a private development that could have prohibited the use of this essential footpath, Henry Islanders approached the Preservation Trust to negotiate a deal that would put the land into SJPT ownership. Adjacent to our 21-acre Mosquito Pass Preserve (protected in 2004), this 60-acre addition—if successful—would ensure permanent protection of an expansive salt marsh, natural dunes, an intertidal zone teeming with wildlife, and a dramatic driftwood beach. Henry Islanders, recognizing that they have so much to gain from this effort, have committed to raise the $1.95 million project goal from among their own neighbors, families, and friends. Still $670,000 short of success, this valiant demonstration of community independence will continue into 2017. If it fails, the isthmus will revert back to the sellers, and all contributions to the project will be returned to donors.


Thanks to a few remarkable private landowners on Sinclair, San Juan, and Blakely islands, we added more than 1,500 acres and four miles of shoreline in the past year to our network of island land protected by conservation easements, which allow private landowners to enjoy (and pay reduced property taxes on) their land, while permanently protecting designated conservation values and reducing development potential.

One noteworthy transaction took place on Blakely Island in May, when a partnership of neighbors—including Seattle Pacific University—conveyed conservation easements to the Preservation Trust. In combination with previous conservation efforts, the Preservation Trust now holds permanent protection on more than 85 percent of Blakely, the eighth-largest island in the San Juan archipelago.

With a number of new conservation easements projects in our pipeline, including two ambitious neighborhood efforts to protect priority landscapes held in multiple ownership, the Preservation Trust remains one of the most prolific land trusts in the country.



Six bluebirds returned to the islands last spring, and we boosted the population by translocating three family groups totaling 18 birds from Joint Base Lewis-McChord in south Puget Sound. Two of the translocated mating pairs successfully re-nested, producing 11 offspring. At the end of our field season [when], 34 birds were observed in the islands, fattening up on insects in preparation for fall migration.


2016 marked the second year of a two-year grant we received from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to aid in recovery of this endemic, highly vulnerable butterfly. SJPT created three new deer-proofed habitat patches for the butterfly on protected lands, planting the butterfly’s favored host plant (field mustard), as well as a number of native nectaring plants. Many adult and student volunteers assisted in establishing these habitat areas. SJPT will seek funding from USFWS to continue this work into its next phase.


Two new trails were created in summer 2016. A half-mile trail on Shaw Island’s Graham Preserve links the existing mile-long Graham Trail with the adjacent Shaw County Park trail system. Middle-school kids from the Orcas Island Youth Conservation Corps cleared the trail, and adult volunteers helped finish the job. The second trail (not entirely complete), on Henry Island Preserve, was created with help from the Northwest Youth Corps, which draws young adults from all over the country. This particular group was made up of hearing-impaired college students from diverse ethnic backgrounds.

In addition to these trail work accomplishments, we mobilized middle-schoolers from the San Juan Island Youth Conservation Corps to vanquish a large patch of invasive tansy ragwort on Mount Grant Preserve.


In 2014, our board of trustees resolved to enhance public enjoyment of some SJPT preserves with signage that would include information about the natural features and cultural heritage of the protected land. The first of these signs was (finally!) installed last May on the Sally’s Garden Conservation Easement, which is the site of the farmers market in the heart of Lopez Village. By the time you read this, signage for Peach Preserve (Guemes Island) and Graham Preserve (Shaw Island) should be in the ground. Next up for 2017: Turtlehead Preserve and Vendovi Island.
