Cattle Point Road/Howard Farm Conservation Easement, San Juan Island

Cattle Point Road/Howard Farm Conservation Easement, San Juan Island

Driving south on Cattle Point Road, the view opens dramatically to reveal a pastoral landscape of hay and grazing fields, vegetable plots, ponds, and barns for sheltering animals and storing crops and equipment. In 2009, the Land Bank assembled the final piece of more than 175 contiguous protected acres in this spot and culminated a 15-year project. A conservation easement on the 27-acre Howard property ensures the land will remain open and available for agriculture.
