petition signers and 40 organizations joined Friends in opposing Roberts Bank Terminal 2 which would increase vessel traffic impacts and risks to environmental, cultural, and economic resources.

Friends of the San Juans respectfully honors the fact that this beautiful place we strive to protect and restore with our mission-centered work is comprised of the ancestral lands, waters, and natural resources of the Coast Salish peoples. These Tribes have cared for and stewarded the San Juan Islands and the Salish Sea since time immemorial—and continue to do so—and we honor inherent, aboriginal, and treaty rights that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Each year I make a generous gift to the Friends of the San Juans because it’s the one organization where I can actually follow the money from my checkbook to observable measurable outcomes. Will you join me in making a gift to support one of the most beautiful, precious, fragile monuments to nature on earth?
