We will be at the Lopez Farmers Market most Saturdays this Summer from 10:00 to 2:00 so come visit our booth.  We will have information about the trails on Lopez Island and also have info about the Bureau of Land Management, the Land Bank, the Preservation Trust, Lopez Island Conservation Corps, Friends of Lopez Hill, San Juan County Parks and WA State Parks. If we aren't there we may be out hiking (see the GO TAKE A HIKE! page) or on our annual WALKABOUT.  But in any case, get out there and bike & hike! 


On Saturday April 22nd the LCTN  joined the 2017 GREAT ISLANDS CLEAN-UP by cleaning the beach area from Flat Point to the Village.   The CLEAN-UP was a great success and resulted in large amounts of trash removed from many public locations on the Island.


Despite some wet weather (hence fewer walkers) the 2016 Walkabout was a great success. The folks below are the one-day crew who walked the 17.66 miles in 7 hours 14 minutes.  Another group did the walk on two consecutive days.  Congratulations to all that participated and “Thanks” to everyone who contributed to make the Walkabout a success.


The LCTN has a number of projects that we will be working on this Winter & Spring so if you would like to help contact Kirm Taylor or join our meetings on the first Friday of the month at 8:30am that are usually held in the Lopez Library meeting room. And it's all free!  But if you would like to contribute towards our expenses you can send a check made out to "LCTN" to Kirm Taylor (1937 Bakerview Rd).  Or if you want a tax deductible donation you can make the check out to "San Juan County Land Bank" and put LCTN in the Memo line.

Currently we are working with several non-profits towards the purchase of Lopez Hill and Odlin South and we will continue to work on projects at Sharks Reef Sanctuary in cooperation with the San Juan County Parks Department.  We also are working on the planning of trails in the Village and the 2017 WALKABOUT.  Contact Kirm Taylor at if you wish to be placed on our mailing list.
