Connor Conservation Easement, Orcas Island

Connor Easement.

Cayou Valley Lagoon is a fertile tidal inlet where blue heron and osprey frequently fish and red-tailed hawks breed. The Land Bank’s conservation easement on 109 of Bob and Meg Connor’s 131 acres, protects this wildlife habitat, and creates a wildlife corridor to an upland freshwater marsh known as the Frank Richardson Preserve. The land will be managed to sustain and enhance wildlife habitat such as perching and nesting trees, open fields, brush areas, and woodlands.
