Summer Property Tours

This summer, let's get out on the lands and waters you have helped us protect!

Cypress & Guemes Island Tour

Friday July 26, 3-7pm
16 spaces available, $150 each

Have you always wanted to visit Cypress Island, see Kelly’s Point from the water, or learn more about Skagit Land Trust's work on these local islands? Come relax and explore with us aboard Island Express as we set sail on a 2.5-hour boat tour.

Guests will learn about conservation efforts in the Salish Sea from Skagit Land Trust staff and board members who have worked to preserve these lands and waters for decades. The group will get the rare opportunity to land on the beach of Cypress Island, where they will be welcomed by the landowner whose family protected their property with a conservation easement in 2007.

Enjoy light refreshments on the trip and hear about how we are working to help conserve these unique and beautiful places.

Join Skagit Land Trust staff for a relaxing and informative float down the Skagit River from Marblemount to Rockport.

Staff will share each property’s story and the history of Skagit River conservation along the route.
