About Ihiya Biological Reserve

We invite you to be part of an extraordinary opportunity for community land stewardship! Guided by principles of social permaculture and indigenous ways of knowing, we are at the forefront of a new approach to sustainability...and we're really exited to share it with you! 

Ihiya Biological Reserve is a nonprofit entity incorporated in the state of Washington. It was formed for the purpose of protecting an essential wetlands so that it can exist unimpaired for wildlife and for human appreciation, connection to nature, environmental education, and wild herbal medicine. The land is located on beautiful San Juan Island, WA and consists of 33 acres of vital riparian habitat that feeds our precious Salish Sea.

This project protects and strengthens self-reliance and interdependence at a time of great global uncertainty. Our combination of land stewardship, indigenous teachings, citizen science, and the teaching and creation of wild plant medicine is a completely unique endeavor...and we hope to be an inspiration for other communities! Your financial contributions will help with the purchase and ongoing stewardship of this land, lovingly referred to as "Ihiya", so that it thrives and is of benefit for generations to come.  

With gratitude, 
The Ihiya Team

$323 of $1,700 per month
$1700 will cover our monthly land payments, ensuring the land is protected and the project is a success! When we exceed this goal, we'll be able to start saving toward our final balloon payment. Exciting note: Once we successfully purchase the 33 acres, we may have a chance to purchase the adjacent 5 acres which is currently on the market.  This would provide an ideal public access point and a location for a community building for classes and gatherings. Let's do this!
