Bell Property Conserved

BellSkagit Land Trust purchased the 15.5 acre “Bell Property” on July 10. This acquisition expands the Trust’s Barney Lake Conservation Area to 368 acres and conserves important wildlife habitat and connects an expansive wetland, grassland, and forested natural area. The campaign was supported by 250 donors and grants from The Skagit Community Foundation’s Clarence Stewart Fund for the Environment, The Seattle Audubon Society’s Martin Miller Fund, The Norcliffe Foundation, Skagit Audubon, and the North American Wetland Conservation Act.

Cumberland Creek is Going Home

Skagit Land Trust’s Cumberland Creek Conservation Area is about to see some big changes. Starting in mid-July, work crews will be on-site to nudge the creek back into its historic channel and restore more than 4,000 feet of salmon habitat. Read more about this exciting project. Please note that the Cumberland Creek Conservation Area will be closed to public access during July and August for safety reasons.
