As you may already know the Blanchard Mountain forest area is threatened with being logged. The Blanchard Mountain area includes Oyster Dome and the Samish Overlook, both very popular hiking areas. The Skagit Land Trust info provides details about this issue and outlines how to take action by contacting your State Legislators, the Commissioner of Public lands and others to ask them to support a $7.7 M state budget item to protect Blanchard Mountain.
