Skagit Land Trust conserves wildlife habitat, agricultural and forest lands, scenic open space, wetlands, and shorelines for the benefit of our community and as a legacy for future generations.
The Trust protects over 7,000 acres across Skagit County, including 34 miles of shoreline. Trust staff and close to 400 volunteers work to steward these properties, removing invasive species, planting native vegetation, and rebuilding natural buffers that keep our waterways clean and supportive of salmon habitat. Over 1,000 family and business members are part of the Trust's efforts to protect the most important and beloved places in Skagit County.
Many Skagit Land Trust properties are open to the public and the Trust hosts events throughout the year to connect the public to these unique natural spaces. The Trust also works with local educators to create learning opportunities on Trust properties. These “Conservation Classrooms” connect kids to the outdoors and allow them to apply their learning in a real-world situation.
Skagit Land Trust is currently working on a dozen new projects under the guidance of a conservation strategy that helps protect the best, most at-risk lands first. Please visit our website for more information about the Trust and learn about upcoming events.
