San Juan Island National Historical Park (SAJH) was established in 1966 to commemorate the historic events from 1853 to 1871 on the island in connection with the final settlement of the Oregon Territory boundary dispute, including the Pig War of 1859. It comprises 1,752 acres and preserves the sites of the American and English camps on the island. In addition to the historical buildings and features at both camps, the park contains important prehistoric Indian sites and is the largest public open space on San Juan Island.

Natural resources in SAJH are varied and include: 6.1 miles of shoreline and intertidal habitat; 92 acres of wetlands, including 3 marine lagoons; 900 acres of grassland, which support varied raptor and songbird populations; a slightly smaller acreage of largely second-growth fir, cedar and maple forests and Garry oak woodland. Impacts from logging, grazing, and cultivation are evident at both camps, but small pockets of old growth forest remain.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
