Native Plant & Tree Seedling Sale – SAT, FEB 6th from 10am to 2pm @ the Land Trust Building
This is your once-a-year chance to purchase bareroot stock, available on Vashon at a great price. These native trees and shrubs have been selected for their qualities as attractive landscape plants, their ability to attract wildlife and for being well-suited to island growing conditions.
THANK YOU, Vashon Ivy League, for a great year of headway we’ve made in our fight to control English Ivy in our island parks and preserves.
Our work parties have wrapped up for 2015, but we will publish a 2016 calendar of volunteer events in the new year!
The Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust was founded in 1989 by a dedicated group of islanders who were concerned about preserving Vashon and Maury. Since that time, the Land Trust has been instrumental in the acquisition and permanent preservation of over sixteen hundred acres of carefully chosen property on Vashon and Maury. An additional 3000+ acres, enrolled in King County’s current use taxation program (the Public Benefit Rating System), are protected and being stewarded by private landowners.
In 1998, the Land Trust was able to buy the little building, now the Land Trust Building, on Bank Road between the Senior Center and Fire Station. The Land Trust building houses our office and is the venue for Land Trust educational programs as well as being available for individuals and community groups to rent for a host of programs and events.
