Trillium forest once in a lifetime opportunity

Nine years ago the Whidbey Camano Land Trust played a crucial role in saving our beloved Saratoga Woods from development. Since then they have run up an impressive record of preserving over 6,000 acres on our precious Islands.

Obviously, these successes would not have been possible without the enthusiastic support of our community. We understand how unique these natural open spaces are for ourselves and as our legacy to future generations.

Now the Land Trust has embarked on its most ambitious project to date. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to save the largest remaining parcel of undeveloped land, the Trillium forest consisting of 664 acres between Freeland and Greenbank.

The challenge is huge, but if there is anyone who can do it, it’s the terrific board and staff of our Whidbey Camano Island Land Trust – with all our help. So I urge you to visit www.savetheforestnow.org, or to call the Land Trust at 360-222-3310, to learn about the details of this project and to offer your help. We need each and every one of you to make this dream come true.
