Did you hear what it will take? Watch our 2021 Annual Meeting!

To those of you who joined us for our 2021 Annual Meeting – thank you!

To those of you who missed last week’s event — if only you could have been there! But don’t worry, here’s a link to the recording!

We witnessed compelling testimonials, gained insight during our engaging conversation with Lynda Mapes, and celebrated our achievements.

I encourage you to watch our Executive Director Brent Lyles’ segment where he shares the case for growing organizational capacity to address the challenges we are facing in the coming year and beyond.

We know the answer to what Lynda Mapes so clearly states – what will it take? We believe the answer is us. All of us. It will take you and Friends of the San Juans. Together we have what it takes to ensure we can make a difference to address climate change impacts to the islands, mentor our youth, and continue to advocate with policy and community involvement for the sustainability and resilience of our orca, salmon, forage fish, and natural shorelines.

We will need your financial support and we will need your voice.

Please donate online today or text the word “Friends” to 360-317-2610. You can also mail your check to Friends at PO Box 1344, Friday Harbor, WA 98250.

Friends of the San Juans was vital for the San Juan Islands’ protection in 1979 and it is still vital today.
