We are all ready for some new connections and opportunities. Through the Virtual Fair, you have an opportunity to connect with Friends staff, ask questions, and hear the passion that drives our mission.

Join us on the virtual couch for Q&A sessions with Friends Staff: Jess, Tina, and Brent; our student mentees: Ela and Linnea; plus a special appearance by Craig Canine from the San Juan Preservation Trust!

We believe that our property is more valuable if we and our neighbors protect the shoreline. Orcas need salmon. Salmon need forage fish. Salmon and forage fish need the protection of eelgrass and kelp. Eelgrass and kelp need clean water. Shoreline protections are good for ecosystems and for the long-term economy of these lovely islands.
