On the heels of the Zylstra Lake property acquisition, the San Juan County Land Bank was able to secure and additional 60+ acres adjacent to Mount Grant Preserve.
“Mount Grant is one of the most fascinating projects I have worked on since becoming a land bank commissioner,” said commissioner Amanda Azous.


“The people and land connections forged by our community on behalf of Mount Grant have far exceeded original goals. As a neighbor I relish that we have protected valuable native forests and wildflower meadows as well as incomparable views we can all enjoy,” she added.

The 30-acre area north of the Preserve will provide access to the lower portion of Mount Grant, aiding in the ecological management and stewardship of the land. The three 10-acre parcels to the west are within the Trout Lake watershed which will help protect the Town’s water supply. The Town of Friday Harbor also donated a trail easement which provides a great overlook of the lake.

To stay apprised of Mount Grant Preserve public scoping meetings, and other Land Bank happenings, contact Tanja Williamson at tanjaw@sjclandbank.org or call 360-378-4402 to be added to the Land Bank’s email list.
