One Month Remaining To Raise Funds To Save Kelly's Point

Skagit Land Trust and Community Have One Month Remaining
To Raise Funds To Save Kelly’s Point and Yellow Bluff

Skagit Land Trust (the Trust) has raised 90% of the funds needed to purchase Kelly’s Point and Yellow Bluff, thanks to an outpouring of support from the Guemes and greater Skagit community. The Trust has one month left to raise the final funds. A recent match challenge from Rick and Bonnie Rule was completed, matching over 240 gifts. Thanks to a new anonymous gift, community donations will continue to be matched.

Skagit Land Trust has secured an agreement with the current owners of Kelly’s Point allowing the Trust until January 28th to purchase the property. The Trust must raise almost $2,000,000 for the project to cover the property purchase plus associated land acquisition, land management and stewardship reserve fund needs. The 27-acre property that will be protected includes the immense bluffs, undeveloped coastal forest and over 3000 feet of marine shoreline.

People wanting to donate to the protection of Yellow Bluff and Kelly’s Point should contact Skagit Land Trust or visit their website at
