MiddleWood Conservation Easement

San Juan Island

Year Protected: 2019

Land Protected: 31 acres

Public Benefits: Rural landscape, forest, pond, trail access

Travelers along Cattle Point Road on San Juan Island will continue to enjoy a rural landscape, woods, pond, and trail access thanks to Jennifer Woodbridge’s donation of a conservation easement on a 31-acre parcel at the corner of Cattle Point Road and Jensen Bay Road.

The County Land Bank owns the property, while the Preservation Trust holds the donated easement. Previously owned by the late Ted Middleton, who was a major supporter of the Preservation Trust, the property has been dubbed “MiddleWood” in recognition of both Ted Middleton and Jennifer Woodbridge.
