Buck Bay West Conservation Easement/ San Juan Preservation Trust, Orcas Island

buck bay

This small but precious .41-acre property dramatically affects the maritime setting of Buck Bay and the views from Pt Lawrence Road in Olga. Buck Bay is an active estuary, rich with marine life. The Land Bank acquired an easement from The San Juan Preservation Trust as part of an ongoing partnership to protect the ecological and scenic marine values of Buck Bay. The property features steeply sloping forest, 343 feet of high bank waterfront, and extensive tidelands. The conservation easement extinguishes all development potential and protects the land as forever wild.
