The Conservation Land Bank’s Turtleback Mountain, Judd Cove and Coho Preserves on Orcas Island sustained heavy damage from the record rainfall.

Although staff members are prioritizing safety-related repairs to roads and trails, please expect minor disruptions. Some repairs may take months and some impacts will be lasting. In particular, the culvert under Wildrose Lane just above Turtleback’s South Entrance parking area has failed and the road will remain closed to until further notice. Preserve visitors may still access the South Trail on foot from the parking lot, but major trail repairs cannot be completed without equipment access. We regret any inconvenience.

For additional information, please contact Orcas Preserve Steward, Peter Guillozet at peterg@sjclandbank.org or phone 360-378-4402.
