Helwig Conservation Easement, Lopez Island

This gift from the Hazel Helwig Trust enhances a network of conservation protection at the south end of Lopez Island.
The donated conservation easement protects a dramatic 10.7-acre shoreline on the southern end of Lopez Island. This land includes woodlands, pasture, a heritage orchard, a rocky headland covered by native grassland, and 570 feet of shoreline on Aleck Bay. The easement includes restrictions on building and siting; it is designed to minimize future impacts to the scenic and open space values of this special place.
