Created in partnership with the City of Oak Harbor and the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, this self-guided tour features many beautiful Garry oaks throughout the old town area of Oak Harbor.

The city itself was named for these mighty trees that line its shores. The Garry Oak is the only native oak in the State of Washington, and its population has severely declined in the last two centuries, making them a unique feature in the landscape of Oak Harbor.
