Gathering on the Lands We Love - Barney Lake

Event Barn on Barney Lake

On October 1st, we’ll celebrate the past 30 years of success we’ve had as a community in saving natural places here in Skagit. We’ll raise a glass to the protection of 10,000 acres of lands we love. We'll also raise support for the crucial conservation work ahead, including at Barney Lake. Together, we are ensuring that the places that make Skagit County special will exist for generations of people and wildlife.

Generous members of the Trust are opening their big red barn on the north shore of Barney Lake for the festivities. Guests will have a chance to catch up with friends, connect with board members, and talk with staff while enjoying delectable bites from Skagit Landing and sipping local wines, beers, and ciders.

Guests are encouraged to dress comfortably and wear good walking shoes for this outdoor gathering. The afternoon will feature live music, walks to the Nookachamps and Barney Lake with views rarely seen by the public, special sign-up experiences, and a fundraiser in support of growing conserved land at Barney Lake and improving public access to this amazing property on the edge of Mount Vernon.

All proceeds from the event help conserve and care for Skagit’s natural lands today and in the future. Please join us for this festive fundraiser.
