For everyone. Forever.

The Bainbridge Island Land Trust’s mission is to conserve and steward the diverse natural environments of Bainbridge Island for the benefit of all.

The Land Trust’s work to protect and restore Bainbridge lands and waters is done to honor past generations, preserve a legacy for future generations, and build a network of protected lands resilient to a changing climate.

We acknowledge that the land on which we work is within the aboriginal territory of the Suquamish People. Expert fisherman, canoe builders, and basket weavers, the Suquamish People live in harmony with the lands and waterways along Washington’s Central Salish Sea as they have for thousands of years.

 To achieve our conservation goals, the Land Trust acquires interests in lands having significant or potentially significant conservation values such as shorelines, streams, wetlands, forests, tidelands, and unique plant and animal habitat networks. These lands provide ecosystem values such as watershed protection, scenic vistas, and open spaces. We work with a variety of partners to acquire land for preserves, parks, trails, and public use or to restore lands to enhance habitat values. We also work with willing private landowners to protect their land using land protection agreements called conservation easements, while being a partner in the stewardship of these lands.
