Care For Land

The Preservation Trust’s stewardship activities include managing the nature preserves we own, monitoring the conservation easements we hold, and restoring damaged or neglected lands that we protect.

Our restoration work includes efforts to preserve conservation-dependent species, such as the island marble butterfly and Western bluebird, whose survival in our islands may require human intervention.

To help with this work, please consider contributing to our Stewardship Fund.


The San Juan Preservation Trust’s Stewardship Program has two main functions: management of Preservation Trust preserves and monitoring of Preservation Trust-held conservation easements.

Landowner Resources

SJPT holds more than 200 conservation easement agreements, and we enjoy productive and meaningful partnerships with each of our landowners. We are pleased to offer technical assistance and volunteer labor to help these conservation easement partners care for their land.
