The Whidbey Camano Land Trust will hold two neighborhood meetings on Whidbey Island in October to gain public input for updating its Conservation Plan.

The plan guides the Land Trust in its conservation work, outlining priority areas on which to focus its land protection and stewardship efforts.

The first meeting will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland. The second meeting will take place from 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19, at Coupeville Recreation Hall.

Land Trust staff will do a short presentation, then engage the public in activities to gain insight on which lands and waters they’d most like to see protected on Whidbey and Camano islands.

A third public meeting also will be held on Camano Island from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the Multipurpose Center.

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust actively involves the community in protecting, restoring, and appreciating the important natural habitats and resource lands that support the diversity of life on our islands and in the waters of Puget Sound.
