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.

Our buddies, at the Friends of the San Juans, have done wonderful work on Sucia Island! Check out their recent restoration project below.

In conservation, the first priority is to protect land before it is altered in an ecologically destructive way. The second priority is to bring back natural processes to a landscape where human activities have halted them.

Habitat restoration requires a lot more energy, but it is something that we humans can do to make a quick positive change in the life cycles of the living creatures that also call these islands "home".

Ready for some good cheer?

Here is our video equivalent of an anthem—an uplifting message that connects people with the Preservation Trust's mission and values.

Thanks to Georgia Drost and Emma Jacobs, our two summer interns, who created this video.

Enjoy!

Chris Norris watch this. Henry Island is featured. ❤

It's not every day that we humans leave our trace in the form of a tree or a native wildflower, but when we do, it's certainly special.

Many thanks to Peter Guillozet, Kayla Seaforth, and all of our volunteers who helped us observe Orca Recovery Day this past Saturday, it was a treat to be outside on a perfect fall day with you all.

We also give gratitude for the care that Turtleback Mountain Preserve has received (both past and present). From the Indigenous peoples who supported an oak savanna, to the preserve stewards and volunteers who do the same (using different methods), to the community who helped to protect this land— allowing the San Juan County Land Bank to continue to manage this place in an ecologically minded way.

A huge shout-out to Promise the Pod and One Tree Planted for sponsoring our event!
