Trip #60 San Juan Islands National Monument, WA

American Hiking Society 1424 Fenwick Ln, Downtown Silver Spring, Silver Spring, MD, USA

Project Description: Volunteers will perform trail maintenance, noxious weed eradication, and recreation site maintenance. The crew will be transported to and from base camp to the work areas via carpools and/or boat with minimal hiking involved. Dependent on the weather, projects may be performed on outer islands.

Area and Attractions: The San Juan Islands are very old mountain tops shaped by glacial activity about 12,000 years ago. The Pacific Ocean's maritime air moderates the climate year-round and the islands support one of the most varied wildlife populations and variety of habitats in the Northwest. Lopez Island is the most rural of the three major islands, covering 29.5 square miles. The landscape blends woods with rolling farmlands and open spaces with shimmering vistas.

A group shelter will be available for cooking and does have 110 electrical outlets for charging cameras and cell phones. Vault toilets are available.
