Kukutali Preserve is co-owned and co-managed by the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community (Tribe) and the
Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (State Parks). The Preserve includes 84 upland acres on
Kiket and Flagstaff islands and about nine upland acres on Fidalgo Island in Skagit County. The Tribe and
State Parks used federal and state grants, as well as private donations, to purchase Kukutali Preserve.
All of the funds used to acquire the property were restricted in their use and could only be spent to acquire
environmentally sensitive lands. These funding sources prioritize long-term preservation, protection, and
conservation of those lands and allow appropriate limited public use.
The Tribe and State Parks are working on developing a long-term management plan that includes a small
amount of development to accommodate limited day-use recreation consistent with the protection, restoration,
and enhancement of the natural and cultural resources at Kukutali Preserve. Public input is encouraged.
