The mission of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust is to protect our Islands’ most important natural habitats, scenic vistas, and working farms and forests in partnership with landowners and our island communities.
The Land Trust started almost 30 years ago when community member, Albert Heath wanted to keep his scenic views and Ebey’s Bluff trail along his land open forever.
“We wanted to save our land forever … and we needed a Land Trust to do that,” explained Albert Heath, founding Land Trust member.
To ensure the permanent protection of his land, Albert needed a land trust to partner with and hold the conservation easement. Thus began the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. Almost immediately, the Hayes Family partnered with the Land Trust to protect their north Whidbey Island agricultural land … and the current land conservation movement in Island County began.
