Jack Island Preserve
Year Protected: 2007
Land Protected: 19 acres
Shoreline Protected: 4,143 feet
Public Benefits: Undeveloped island
Once the location of a commercial fox farm, Jack Island is now an undeveloped 19-acre jewel located just east of the northern tip of Guemes Island. To ensure its long-term stewardship, Jack was donated to the Preservation Trust by a visionary islander who originally purchased the island to thwart the plans of an ambitious condominium developer.
