SHIP (Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve) is located between the Washington State Ferry terminal on the west and residential developments near the cul de sac at Edwards Way on the east.
In addition to the 25 acres of freshwater wetlands, there are also five acres of upland habitat and 2,000 fee of sandy beach and subtidal ellgrass beds. There is a defined trail system that is protective of particularly sensitive areas and also provides environmental education about the role and significance of the beach and wetlands.
Participants in this project include the City of Anacortes, Anacortes Park Foundation, Western Washington University's Shannon Point Marine Center, the Anacortes School District, Evergreen Islands, the Port of Anacortes, Washington State Ferries and a group of local citizens.
