Skagit Land Trust (the Trust)is a non-profit membership-based organization that conserves conservation land and stewards it for our community and future generations of people and wildlife. We purchase and accept donations of land and conservation easements, and we assist partners with land conservation projects. We only work with willing landowners so that all conservation we undertake is voluntary. We are a private 501C-3 nonprofit organization. Many land and conservation easement donations or bargain-sales to the Trust are charitable gifts. We also purchase critical conservation land at appraised value. Financial suport comes from contributions from our supporters and grants.

Skagit Land Trust Conservation Areas are lands we own and manage. Our Conservation Areas are often open to the public for low-impact access. Several have developed trails and parking areas on them. Properties with voluntary Conservation Easements are owned by private landowners or by public agencies (like the Anacortes Community Forest Lands). Most Conservation Easements on public lands allow low-impact public access. Conservation Easements on private lands are not required to be open to the public by federal or state charitable laws.
