Get to know your community forestlands! It’s time to join a guided hike, and begin to learn more about the fascinating wild heart of our island.
The Friends of the Forest is a non-profit, citizen organization dedicated to the preservation of the Anacortes Community Forest Lands through education, outreach, and stewardship. We have a multi-layered education program that strives to meet the needs of all Fidalgo Island residents. Our education program includes K-12 guided school field trips, Adult/Senior hikes, All ages hikes, Forest Discovery Day Camp, trail and habitat restoration, Adult field seminars, a quarterly newsletter, and our two comprehensive school district programs; Growing Wild-native plants for all 3rd graders, and Middle School Watershed Discovery for all students in the 7th grade.
Our community hikes are FREE and no registration is required. Please join our Naturalist Guide, Denise Crowe, this spring as we continue to explore and learn more about the ACFL together. For more information about our group or these hikes please contact Denise or Jean at 293-3725. You may also visit our website www.friendsoftheacfl.org or inquire by email at email@example.com These hikes focus on human and wildlife experience, so we ask that you please leave your pets at home. Hope to see you in the woods!
