Kelly’s Point Saved – Campaign Success!

Skagit Land Trust Protects Kelly’s Point and Yellow Bluff

The immense bluffs, coastal forest, and marine shoreline of Kelly’s Point have been conserved by Skagit Land Trust. Over 450 families, businesses, and organizations donated towards the $1,380,000 purchase that conserved the property on the southwest corner of Guemes Island. Other funds were provided by The Conservation Fund as a bridge loan while the Trust awaits a federal U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service grant award. The purchase of these 27 acres, with 3000 feet of marine shoreline, ensures that the land will remain forever undeveloped, maintaining its rich wildlife habitat and natural shoreline. Skagit Land Trust will manage the property as one of its conservation areas.
