This habitat includes mature forests and open meadows. The Land Bank partnered with the San Juan Preservation Trust to protect Mount Ben’s important scenic and ecological resources and to provide opportunities for public access. These 21 acres on the south shoulder of Mount Dallas feature outstanding views to the south across San Juan Valley, the southern end of San Juan Island, the Strait of Juan De Fuca, and beyond. There are numerous opportunities for pedestrian trails on this land. The Land Bank, the Preservation Trust, and a landowner gift each contributed to acquire a conservation easement.
