Fox Island Nature Center

716 9th Avenue
Fox Island, WA 98333


It was purchased in 2004 as a nature center and wildlife preserve; it includes lush deep forest (old cedar, ferns, huckleberry, etc), one of the major year-round island streams and several wetlands. Since then, several volunteer organizations (including Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and the Sand & Soil Garden Club) have conducted projects that improve access to the natural beauty of the center and comfort while there. These include bridges, trail definition and clearing, boardwalks over mushy areas, benches for rest and quiet contemplation, signs identifying native trees and plants, picnic tables and the entry garden.

The Nature Center Committee has been developing long-term goals, improving trails, controlling non-native invasive plants (such as blackberry, ivy, holly), identifying native plants and animals on site, and is beginning to screen project proposals and develop nature appreciation programs. With help from experts, members are learning more about the wildlife present so we can better manage the property and support public education and interest in nature. The center is truly a treasure to be shared and carefully managed.
