Samish Island - Corkery Property

Property Description

This conservation easement protects 25 acres of forest and shoreline and rare Garry oak habitat on the west side of Samish Island. It was donated in December, 1994 and expanded in 2010.  This beautiful, intact habitat was at one point intended to be the site of a nuclear power plant before the effort was stopped by community opposition in the 1980's.  Subsequently, the property -- along with other parcels now protected by conservation easements on Samish Island -- was purchased by conservation-minded individuals. They partnered with Skagit Land Trust to extinguish the majority of development rights on the land and permenantly protect this special area for older forest habitat, wildlife and scenic views through a voluntary, donated conservation easement .

The easement on this property was expanded in 2010.  Read all about it in the this newsletter article.

This is private property without public access.
