trout lake

This 40-acre parcel situated near the top of the town watershed and surrounded on three sides by Town of Friday Harbor land is key for watershed protection. The Land Bank will encumber approximately ten acres with a conservation easement that restricts development and prevents land use practices that could impact the quality of the town’s water supply. The encumbered property will be included in the Land Bank Conservation Buyer Program and resold for limited residential use. The Land Bank will retain ownership of the remaining thirty acres.
