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.

We acknowledge that we reside on the ancestral lands and waters of the Coast Salish people, who have called this place home since time immemorial, and we honor the inherent, aboriginal, and treaty rights that have been passed down from generation to generation.

What a way to round out what Vendovi Island Caretaker Thyatira Thompson calls the preserve's "Super Bowl Season"!

Thank you so much to @the_bronze_chapter for visiting Vendovi Island on Sunday. It's hard not to enjoy a spring visit to Vendovi, but especially when there were a number of conversations on topics like increasing accessibility to conserved land, improving and deepening relationships to places, and bringing in more perspectives to help shape how land can be preserved for all people to benefit from equitably. We look forward to future events with The Bronze Chapter, like their trip to Shaw Island this summer, and continuing dialogues on how SJPT can contribute to improving your experience on our preserves.

Such a wonderful experience. Having been born in Seattle and never having left the area, I can’t believe that I don’t know the San Juan’s inside out. We’re so blessed to have these spaces. And so blessed that San Juan Preservation Trust is working to keep our natural spaces natural and wild. It’s the work of caring for Mother Nature. And educating humans why we need to honor our Mother. Thank you for all you do!

PHEW! Thanks to our small but mighty crew of trail work volunteers yesterday, we were able to survive Friday, the 13th, and just about finish our work on the Keel Preserve Trail!

Kristin and Wes, thank you for your time and efforts! Because of you, the steepest parts of the trail will have an easier grade to hike and will be more durable for years to come. Plus, we added a bench to bask in the glory of the waterfall at the end of the hike!

All in a good day's work.

If you're interested in volunteering with the Preservation Trust, please reach out and let us know how you'd like to get involved. We also have many events already planned, just check out our online calendar. We hope to see you out there someday soon!
