Easement Monitoring Visits
Each year volunteer Lead Stewards visit each of our conservation easements to monitor the property. The monitoring "season" begins in February with training and visits to properties take place throughout the remainder of the year. Interested in learning more about volunteering as a Lead Steward for one of our conserved properties? Contact us!
Resources for Current Lead Stewards
From time to time the BILT office seeks volunteers to help in the office with such tasks as filing records, data entry, writing thank you notes, and more. Mailing parties are held approximately every quarter to prep, seal, and send off various BILT publications and announcements. This is an excellent way to meet new people while supporting the mission of the Land Trust! Contact us!
First Wednesday Work Parties
Support the Land Trust's mission of stewarding the unique natural places of Bainbridge Island by volunteering at one of our First Wednesday Work Parties. This monthly event takes place on various Land Trust conserved properties. We perform a variety of work tasks, including but not limited to invasive species removal, native species planting, and trail maintenance. Folks of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds are welcome to join us. Check our Events Page to see a list of upcoming work party dates and locations.
Join A Committee
Consider sharing your time and expertise by joining a Land Trust committee! Committee members support the Land Trust by making recommendations to the Land Trust board of directors in areas such as Stewardship, Outreach, and Fundraising. Committees typically meet once a month.
BILT holds or participates in many different volunteer-driven events throughout the year, such as the Annual Meeting Potluck, Native Plant Sale, Fourth of July Parade, and more. These events couldn't happen without the support of enthusiastic volunteers! Contact us!
We often ask science professionals to assist with baseline documentation on our easements or issues that come up during monitoring visits. Our list of science advisors includes biologists, botanists, geologists, wetlands experts, fisheries biologists, etc. Contact us!
The Land Trust is working in partnership with the West Sound Wildlife Shelter in presenting a "Brown Bag" lecture series on various topics associated with the natural world. Please visit our events page for details.
