Bluebell Springs Conservation Easement, Orcas Island

This conservation easement, acquired through donation, protects an important stretch of scenic shoreline on the north shore of Orcas Island. The 66.6 acre property is a mixture of forest and meadow. The Twin Lakes seasonal outfall passes through the middle of the property and empties into Georgia Strait. Approximately 1,800 feet of shoreline is visible from the waters of the strait and some of the outer islands. This easement reduces development from 13 lots to five, and eight potential shoreline lots will be limited to two.
