Flood of Support for Land Protection in Skagit County
Last night Heather and I, thanks to Skagit Land Trust Board Member Janice Martin spent an enjoyable and profitable evening at McIntyre Hall in Mount Vernon (WA) attending the Skagit Land Trust's annual Auction and Dinner. It was enjoyable for all us attendees and profitable for the land trust. They were successful in raising thousands of much needed dollars to help procure properties throughout the county for protection. Heather and I are proud to be members of this fine organization. Proud to be making a positive difference here in Skagit County - our home since the summer of 2007. And here's some more exciting news for lovers of good outdoor reading and advocates of land protection, I am part of a team of writers and photographers working on a new coffee table book on the Skagit Land Trust and the special natural areas of the county. I'll fill you in on more information as we advance through the book building process. Great-just what I need to be working on yet another book! Its a labor of love and a love for protecting our special and very threatened natural places. I hope you too get involved with your local land trusts to help leave a lasting legacy for the next generation and for the myriad of species that are depending on us not to pave over the whole darn planet.
