February 21: The Orcas Island Garden Club presents Garry Oaks, Bluebirds & You at Orcas Center

Please join the Orcas Island Garden Club at 10 am Wednesday, February 21, 2024 at the Orcas Center, when we welcome Kathleen Foley Lewis, Special Projects Director for The San Juan Preservation Trust.

Sadly, our only native oaks, the Garry or Oregon White Oak, are not easily found on Orcas. More than just beautiful trees, they’re the linchpin for ecosystems important to native plants, animals and insect species. Our native bluebird, the Western, is one species significantly affected by the loss of Garry Oak habitats.
