On a recent summer morning, a symphony of songbirds sang their hearts out under the canopy of a pristine Central Whidbey forest. The lush and diverse surroundings and delightful sounds in this healthy, 13-acre forest made it clear how much wildlife seemed at home in this wonderful setting. The peace and beauty of it all made any other future for this beautiful spot unimaginable – all the more remarkable since it recently came close to being developed into home sites. The Whidbey Camano Land Trust is incredibly excited to share that this untouched forest is now permanently protected! Thanks to the generosity and passion of Land Trust members, the land trust was able to move quickly to acquire the property, and it will now remain undisturbed for wildlife as a nature preserve.
