Reprieve for Land Trust: The three banks that own the 664-acre former Trillium woods near Freeland have granted a 90-day deadline extension to Whidbey Camano Land Trust, a non-profit organization leading a community effort to raise $4.2 million to preserve the forest.
As of Thursday, the Land Trust had commitments for $2.4 million from a variety of sources, leaving $1.8 million to raise by Sept. 10. The original purchase deadline was June 10.
