San Juan County is now the owner of Lopez Hill! This incredible 400 acre property is now protected for generations to come!
In a process that took a long time and resulted in a 50-year lease in 2009, the San Juan County Land Bank negotiated with the WA State DNR to reach a deal. MANY THANKS to everyone involved in the Friends of Lopez Hill and the many volunteers who helped along the way. Many, many thanks also, to the County Council and the Land Bank, who continued to keep this project a priority.
We’ll be hosting a celebration sometime soon; we will announce details as we finalize plans.
Our beloved and hard-working steward, Tim Clark, is retiring the end of May. The San Juan County Land Bank is hiring a replacement.
