Natural Skagit unveiled November 13th

This Thursday November 13th at the Skagit Valley Gardens in Mount Vernon, the coffee-table book Natural Skagit: A journey from Mountains to Sea will be officially launched. A compilation of the writings of 8 authors including moi, who penned the first chapter highlighting the area's people and history-and a collection of stunning imagery from local photographers including standout Lee Mann-this book is meant to celebrate the beauty of Skagit County and help protect it. One of the last rural regions on the I-5 corridor between Seattle and Vancouver, BC and one of the last agriculturally viable counties in Western Washington, development pressures are strong on Skagit County. The Skagit Land Trust is a driving force in protecting natural areas, productive farm and timberland and undeveloped river shore and shoreline in the county. I'm a resident of this beautiful region of Washington State. I am a proud member of the Land Trust. And I am an author on this beautiful book. I invite you to attend the launch and of course purchase a book. For more information visit Skagit County Land
