The Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust was founded in 1990 to preserve and protect the natural ecosystems and rural character of Vashon-Maury Island. With the support of many partners, the Land Trust has conserved over 2,000 acres of wetlands, forests, streams and shoreline on this island in the Puget Sound. With 45 miles of shoreline in the Puget Sound, what happens here matters to the health of the greater Puget Sound region.
With roots as a conservation organization founded originally to save the unique and sensitive Whispering Firs Bog, the Land Trust has evolved to include larger scale habitat restoration projects and the expansion of public access as parts of our mission. We purchased the historic Matsuda Farm in 2015 as our first farm conservation project. Like all natural resources under threat by the growing urbanization in our region, farmland is being replaced by pavement at a rapid pace. We value the ability of our region to grow its own food and look forward to returning this former berry farm to active agriculture.
We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for our residents and neighbors throughout the region. We do this by maintaining a healthy and accessible natural environment for both people and wildlife.
