Small Press Story #27: Publisher and Activist Gary Worthington

Timebridges publisher and author Gary Worthington helped develop the new Cama Beach State Park on a historic waterfront resort site formerly operated by his wife Sandra's family on Camano Island, Washington. The story of the area is the subject of Worthington's most recent book, Cama Beach: A Guide and a History.

The couple are also involved in planning and developing The Cooper Point Wildlife Preserve, with several green-built houses and a large natural area on a 38-acre site by their home.

Following their travels in India, Gary and Sandra established a private foundation which funds primary schools in India and other projects to help people become economically self-reliant.
