The Bainbridge Island Land Trust’s mission is to preserve and steward the diverse natural environment of Bainbridge Island for the benefit of all. We do this by seeking interests in land having significant or potentially significant conservation values such as scenic vistas, wetlands, open spaces, tidelands, forest, unique plant and animal habitats and stream and wildlife corridors. We work with private landowners to permanently protect their land using conservation easements. We also work with a variety of partners to acquire land for preserves, parks, trails and public use.
The Bainbridge Island Land Trust is a 501(c)(3) Washington state private, nonprofit corporation and a qualified conservation organization under IRS Code Section 170(h). Our tax I.D. number is: 91-1439338. As an accredited member of the national Land Trust Alliance (LTA), the Land Trust has adopted the LTA’s Standards and Practices and meets the highest standards for excellence, upholds the public’s trust, and ensures that its conservation efforts are permanent. The accreditation seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation work.
