The San Juan Islands: Precious. Finite. Worth protecting.

Friends of the San Juans protects and restores the San Juan Islands and the Salish Sea for people and nature— since 1979. We champion clean water, forests, food, and healthy communities by using science, education, and advocacy. Our innovative programs help the region’s environment and economy thrive.
