CELEBRATING SJPT’s BIG FOUR-O
Remember 1979? The Sony Walkman made its debut that year. Disco hits like “Y.M.C.A.” and “I Will Survive” topped the pop charts. Skylab crashed to earth. And, on April 18, articles of incorporation for the San Juan Preservation Trust were signed, notarized, and submitted to the Washington Secretary of State.
With that, the Preservation Trust became the first conservation land trust in Washington. SJPT was then, and remains today, a pioneering organization at the forefront of the conservation land trust movement in the United States.
Together, we’ve come a long way since 1979. Together, with our landowner partners and you—one of our precious 3,000+ member-donors—the Preservation Trust has now permanently protected more than 300 properties, 45 miles of shoreline, 27 miles of trails and 18,000 acres on 20 islands.
Together, let’s celebrate SJPT’s 40th birthday at this year’s Annual Meeting!
- Saturday, May 4, San Juan Island Yacht Club, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- $25 per person. RSVP by mailing the invitation/ballot card with your check.

We look forward to welcoming Andrew Bowman, President of the Land Trust Alliance, as our featured speaker. In addition to reviewing highlights of the past year, Angela Anderson will give a presentation on SJPT’s new mission, vision, and strategic goals (see main article).
This will be the Annual Meeting of the decade! Space is limited, so register soon.
