Submitted by the San Juan County Conservation Land Bank.
The San Juan County Conservation Land Bank and San Juan Preservation Trust are celebrating our newest collaboration together and you are invited.
Please join the county council, and staff and commissioners/directors from both organizations between the hours of 10 am to 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 24 at the North Shore/Glenwood Inn property on Orcas Island.
Meander from the upland to the shoreline and learn about the property’s mature forests, wetlands, shoreline, and the tidelands that support eelgrass and forage fish.
Due to limited on-site parking, the Land Bank has organized a roundtrip shuttle bus from Orcas Island High School to the Preserve. Park your car in the student and guest parking area only; the shuttle will pick up/drop off on the half-hour, starting at 9:45 a.m.
