Illg Preserve


Help us remove some invasive weeds at the Illg Preserve, a lovely preserve on the southern coast of San Juan Island that is otherwise not open to public access.


The Illg Preserve on the southern coast of San Juan Island is a place that holds an array of ecological appeals, including its rocky balds, exposed intertidal habitat, sheltered beach and dramatic perspective of the Haro and Juan de Fuca straights. Come enjoy some end-of-the-week time with us in the outdoors and pitch in with some spring cleanup of this beautiful preserve.

San Juan Island Land Steward Ben Hallowell will lead and Jack Russillo, Volunteer and Outreach Coodinator, will support. SJPT will supply tools and some snacks, but please bring your own lunch and arrange your own transportation to Red Mill Farm. We'll plan to meet there and carpool out to the Illg Preserve together.
