For 28 years, the Skagit Land Trust community of 1,500 members, 300+ volunteers, and 40+ partners have worked together to conserve Skagit's watersheds, natural lands, and wildlife habitat for the benefit of current and future generations. Skagit is known for scenic rivers, expansive floodplains, fertile agricultural lands, islands, native forests, and abundance of wildlife.

Together we have -

• conserved 8,350 acres through the Trust

• protected 44 miles of shoreline

• preserved an additional 1,689 acres in Skagit County through partner collaborations

• connected 1,000+ youth with Skagit lands each year

Nature offers us lessons in collaboration and interconnectedness. The work we do together to leave a legacy of a healthy, connected environment remains vital. Each day that unfolds is new, however one thing we know is that the beautiful properties our community has helped save will bring great joy and solace for years to come. The importance of these natural lands can be felt especially deeply at this time, as we turn to nature for respite, signs of resilience, and renewal.
