Camano Action for a Rural Environment

C.A.R.E. is a group of citizens like you who want to preserve the rural character of our island so that the natural landscapes, vegetation and wildlife predominate over the built environment.

We live here because we appreciate the wonderful views, birds, trees and fields of the rural environment. We want these basic characteristics of Camano Island to be preserved for future generations.

The comprehensive plan adopted by Island County in 1998 represents a blueprint for Camano Island as a rural community. Development interests can sometimes run counter to this plan and, through our efforts, we seek to educate the community about the benefits of enhancing the rural lifestyle here.

C.A.R.E is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization
