Over the last 23 years, the Bainbridge Island Land Trust (BILT) has protected some of the most special places on Bainbridge Island, including forestlands, wetlands, shorelines, streams and riparian corridors, agricultural lands, recreational lands and trails, open spaces, and scenic vistas. In 2011, BILT began preparing its first ever Strategic Conservation Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to help define BILT’s conservation priorities for the next five to ten years and to identify strategies for advancing those priorities. The Plan is intended to provide additional direction and guidance for BILT’s Board and staff to help ensure that we spend our limited financial and human resources in ways that produce the greatest possible conservation gains for our Island.
BILT sought public comment on our draft plan and held a stakeholder meeting with a number of resource agencies on the draft plan. This important feedback helped guide our final draft, which was adopted by the BILT board March 27, 2012.
