The San Juan Islands Conservation District is about to celebrate an amazing milestone: 75 years of conservation service to their community! To celebrate, they are having an open house:
Help us celebrate 75 years of Conservation District Community Engagement! Guest presenters, free giveaways, tasty treats, and a look back through 75 years of local conservation efforts.
The San Juan Islands Conservation District (SJICD) is celebrating its 75th birthday on September 9 – and you’re invited! The District will host an outside open house from 4-7 p.m. at the San Juan Historical Museum, 405 Price Street, Friday Harbor. This event is open to the public, whether you’re a San Juan County resident, businesses, non profit partner or visitor, you are encouraged to attend.
The celebration will feature guest presenters, free giveaways, tasty treats, and a look back through 75 years of local conservation efforts. In addition, the beautiful grounds of the San Juan Historical Museum will be open for self-guided tours from 4-5 p.m. The museum creates the perfect backdrop for this event, allowing visitors to step back in time to 1894, when life on the island revolved around harvest times and ocean currents (which for many of us working in conservation and agriculture it still does!).
