Emerson Students Enhance the Earth

On the morning of April 24, Arbor Day, a busload of Emerson High School students tumbled out into the damp woods of Skagit Land Trust’s Cumberland Creek Conservation Area some three miles east of Day Creek. As their day unfolded, they would visit and work at several stations as part of an emerging Youth Conservation Leadership program with the Trust. Read more about this important youth program partnership and this fun day!

Skagit's March Point herons are back. Watch live video from one of the largest Great Blue Heron colonies in the Western U.S. on the March Point Heronry page and read the Skagit Valley Herald article about elementary students learning about the herons.

Visit Trust Conservation Areas

Skagit Land Trust protects beautiful lands throughout Skagit County - many of which are open to the public. Go for a walk at Cumberland Creek, bring your binoculuars and do some birding at Green Rd. Marsh, or learn about elk at Hurn Field among other activities available at our conservation areas. See visiting Skagit Land Trust properties for details.

National Accreditation Renewed

Skagit Land Trust has achieved renewed land trust accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance. The Trust was awarded renewed accreditation this February and is one of only 301 land trusts from across the country that are now accredited. Accredited land trusts are authorized to display a seal indicating to the public that they meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent.
