Judd Cove Preserve, Orcas Island (Accessible to the public)


The Judd Cove Preserve is an exquisite jewel along the western shore of East Sound. Comprised of three parcels acquired by the Land Bank from 2000 – 2008, the 11-acre natural area encompasses a rich variety of habitats, including mature mixed forest, 355 feet of marine shoreline, freshwater wetlands, and extensive tidelands. The site is also the location of a partially restored 1880’s lime kiln and quarry which help tell the story of the lime industry in the San Juans. The peaceful and picturesque setting of this sanctuary offers pedestrian shoreline access and special opportunities for wildlife watching.
