"The islands are famous for their tranquil, beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife, and a sense of the past. Conserving these qualities on your property can not only give you pleasure, but will protect the value of your investment and bring you closer to your land and community."
A Place in the Islands, 2007
New to the islands?
Every year, the unique nature of island communities in the Salish Sea attracts new residents seeking their own special place. Whether you are a newcomer or seeking a renewed understanding of how to become the best steward for your land, the award winning publication A Place in the Islands [PDF - 3.6 MB] is for you.
This publication was produced by the Islands Trust, the Islands Trust Fund and the San Juan Preservation Trust, with funding from the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia and the R. Bruce Bedell Conservation Fund of Washington State.
