Henry Island Preserve

Summary

For this Earth Day inspired event, come enjoy some outer-island tranquility and help us with some Henry Island Preserve maintenance.

Description

Only a short boat ride from busy Roche Harbor, Henry Island Preserve feels like a world away, straddling the boundary between the shallow waters of Mosquito Pass and the blue depths of Haro Strait. Come enjoy some outer-island tranquility and pitch in with spring cleanup on this beautiful preserve, a short boat ride from Roche Harbor (San Juan Island). The plan for this work party will be to do a bit of trail maintenance, beach cleanup, caring for a few new tree plantings, and potentially some weed pulling.

Henry Island Land Steward Ben Halowell will lead and Jack Russillo, Volunteer and Outreach Coodinator, will support. Listed start and end times are approximate. Work parties typically last 3-4 hours and are timed to meet ferry schedules.

Details about when and where to meet, etc., will be emailed to registered participants prior to the event. We'll supply tools and some snacks. Bring your own lunch and water bottle/beverage. Boat transportation will be provided, embarking from Roche Harbor Marina.
