Deer Harbor Waterfront Preserve, Orcas Island
This 2-acre property with 650 feet of low-bank marine shoreline and associated tidelands, is located just north of the Deer Harbor hamlet. Mixed forest and an area of open meadow with a walking path, provides public access to the shoreline and views across the harbor to the Wasp Islands. A variety of birds utilize this property, including bald eagles, osprey, kingfishers and hummingbirds. The Land Bank�s restoration efforts at this site have improved important shoreline processes and habitat function to benefit forage fish essential to salmon.

Land Bank Purchase Price: $1,050,000 (2006) with approx. $75,000 (as of December 2006) contributed by Deer Harbor residents toward stewardship of the property.
