Celebrate Voluntourism in the San Juan Islands during April

Visit the San Juan Islands during April - National Volunteer Month - and  celebrate Earth Day, have fun with environmental art at the SJIMA in Friday Harbor,  work with locals to maintain trails in Moran State Park on Orcas Island, ride your bike in the Tour de Lopez, and  enjoy the All-Species Parade in Lopez Village.

Other Earth Day stewardship events throughout April make a springtime visit to the San Juans not only a relaxing getaway, but a great learning opportunity for families with children. Join locals for Great Island Cleanups at some of Shaw, Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Islands’  beautiful beaches.

At the San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA) from March 4th through May 15th, painter and sculptor Suze Woolf’s show Charred Totems will feature twelve suspended, cast paper tree paintings and three pine beetle books, which begin the conversation about climate change, and the risk of loss in our northwest forests due to beetle infestation and fires.
