The Anacortes Community Forest Lands cover nearly 2,800 acres within the City of Anacortes. They encompass a mosaic of forest, wetlands, lakes and meadows coupled with the broad based desire of local citizens to act as stewards for this environmental and recreational resource. There are 50 miles of multiple use trails in the forest lands.
As of 2011, 1680 of the Anacortes Community Forest Lands have been protected by Skagit Land Trust-held conservation easements under the City’s Conservation Easement Program. The community has wholeheartedly supported this project since it began in October 1998. These acres are now protected from commercial development, tree cutting, and mining. For more information about the conservation easement agreement between Skagit Land Trust and the City of Anacortes, visit the City of Anacortes website.
