Westside Scenic Preserve, San Juan Island (Accessible to the public)

westside_whales

This open expanse lying west of Westside Road provides public access to nearly 16 acres and protects over one-half mile of shoreline south of the Land Bank’s Deadman Bay Preserve. Most notable among this land’s features is the biologically-rich, rocky, inter-tidal habitat and offshore reef. The property offers spectacular panoramic views and visitors may watch for whales and other marine life from the high rocky bluffs that overlook Haro Strait. While best known for its scenic attributes, the Westside Scenic Preserve also has ecological significance as a remnant of an ancient prairie ecosystem. Maintaining and restoring native prairie is one of the Land Bank’s goals here.
