25 Mar Kitsap Great Give is April 19th!

The Kitsap Great Give is a 24-hour “give-day” event that unites our community through a special online donation platform to support the many nonprofit organizations that make Kitsap a great place to live – for all of us. Presented by Kitsap Community Foundation and the United Way of Kitsap County, this annual “community movement of generosity” has resulted in more than $12 million in community support since 2014. Mark your calendars for April 19th, 2022 to join in on the Kitsap Great Give. Funds raised through the Kitsap Great Give help the Land Trust to further our mission of conserving and stewarding the diverse natural environment of Bainbridge Island – for all! Give to the Bainbridge Island Land through the Kitsap Great Give.

07 Mar April’s Free Invasive Disposal Days Are Back!

Sundays, April 17 and 24 from 10am to 4pm. We’re here to help you get your yard in order with two days of FREE Invasive Weed Disposal! Bring your weeds to the transfer station and the Land Trust will cover the cost of disposal. Invasive plant targets are Scotch broom, English holly, English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, tansy ragwort, English laurel, and the noxious weeds on King county’s “Noxious Weed” list. Please do not mix in non-invasive yard waste. For questions about whether or not something will be accepted, email Andrew Fraser, Land Trust Stewardship Manager, or call (206) 842-1216. Invasive plant species are one of the leading causes of vegetation biodiversity loss. They spread quickly and can displace native plants, prevent new native plant growth, and create monocultures. Lack of diversity among native plants reduces the quality and quantity of fish and wildlife habitat. Remove your invasives now while the ground is soft and make room for native plants come fall and winter when the weather is best for planting!
