Two undeveloped islands to be added to Deception Pass State Park.
Talk about miraculous! There's money available in this horrible recession to purchase two undeveloped Puget Sound Islands-and there are actually two undeveloped islands left in Puget Sound! Read this article in the Skagit Valley Herald and plan on visiting this unique area sometime soon. And while I welcome these islands to Deception Pas State Park I do hope that the area is managed with its rare plants in mind so that the area does not become degraded at the expense of recreation. A good balance can be achieved but state park land managers will definitely need a hand from the public. Think about getting involved.
