Saratoga Woods Preserve

A few years ago these power women worked to save 118 acres of land by fighting off developers (twice), stopping logging, and then raising $750,000 in six months to purchase the land. It is now a wonderful Island County park! This photo was taken as a tribute to Phil Pearl who negotiated the deal with the sellers and the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. Phil is leaving Whidbey to accept a position as Deputy Director of the Grand Canyon Trust in Arizona.
