In addition to creating and expanding the nature preserves that we manage, the Land Trust is involved in other methods of conserving lands and habitats on the Island. In some cases, the Land Trust has received a donation of stand-alone property with sufficient conservation value to retain and protect it. In other instances, the Land Trust has acted as the lead negotiator on behalf of King County in acquiring property with significant ecological features or conditions. The Land Trust also holds conservation easements over several private properties, either aquired from or donated by the land owners.
