St. John Point is one of only a handful of large, privately-owned, undeveloped parcels in the Southern Gulf Islands that feature over a mile of shoreline. The property is a high priority for acquisition because of those characteristics, and the quality and unusual nature of the forest. Preserving the forest is very important both because there is so little Coastal Douglas Fir habitat remaining (of which 80% is on private property) and to prevent subdivision into six lots, as allowed by the zoning.
If we succeed in purchasing St. John Point it will be permanently protected and publicly accessible, so that its beauty can be enjoyed for generations to come. Your contribution to American Friends will help us achieve this goal and will be fully tax deductible in the US. Read more about St. John Point.
