Join Us!

Friends of Camano Island Parks strives to keep Camano a wildlife friendly island by training volunteers to serve as Habitat Stewards to help the community create, preserve, enhance, and restore wildlife habitat. The training includes topics ranging from identifying native plants to creating a personal wildlife sanctuary.

Opportunities for Making a Difference
Even if you're not a Habitat Steward, we would love to have you join us. If you would like to become directly involved with the Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, we have volunteer meetings at 6 p.m. before the monthly public programs the third Wednesday of the month. We also have work parties at our demonstration gardens the first and second Tuesdays of the month. Our demonstration gardens are at the Camano Senior and Community Center and Four Springs Lake Preserve. We also have interpretive trails at Elger Bay Preserve and the Al Emerson Trail at Camano Island State Park. For questions, contact Bev Reaume at 387-5619 or
