    Ann Aagaard raised three children with her husband, Knut, in Bothell. She founded the grassroots environmental organization SAVE (Save Our Valuable Environment) in the mid-1970s, as the first farmlands in the Northshore area came up for development. She was instrumental in the fight to save Vitulli Farms and later played a significant role in the transition of the Dick Truly property from cattle ranch to the UW Bothell/Cascadia Community College co-located campus. Aagaard served on the Washington State Ecological Commission, when Chris Gregoire was head of the Department of Ecology, and she was on the advisory council for the architects who designed the UW Bothell/Cascadia Community College co-located college. less
