Land Trust seats new board members

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust recently welcomed three new members to its board of directors.

Janet Hall, of Freeland, and Jay Adams and Michael McGarry, of Coupeville, joined the board in January.

Hall is well known locally for her work in environmental education. She worked as an interpretive specialist for Washington State Parks before retiring in 2018. Prior to that, she spent nearly 20 years as an environmental educator and volunteer coordinator for WSU Waste Wise Island County. She continues to teach birding classes for Whidbey Audubon Society.

Adams also is passionate about birding and has a background as an educator.

A New England native, he spent most of his working years teaching history and managing historical sites in Massachusetts and Maine.

Adams moved to Whidbey Island in 2015.

McGarry is a retired clinical psychologist who moved to the Ebey’s Landing area of Whidbey in 2016.

An avid beach walker, McGarry said he was drawn to the area’s natural beauty and shorelines after growing up near the beach in Florida.
