Bainbridge Island Land Trust and COVID-19: We’re all in this together.

Dear Supporters of the Land Trust,

Your health and the safety of our community are vital to the work of the Land Trust, as is, of course, our staff.  While work of the Land Trust continues, to help protect all our health, we have made the decision for Land Trust staff to work remotely at this time. If you need to get in contact with us call or email, we are still working!  Updates on reopening the office to the public will be determined by following specific guidelines set out by local and state leaders. Regrettably, we have canceled all upcoming public group tours of the new Springbrook Creek Preserve and other properties out of an abundance of caution.  But you can take a virtual tour by clicking below:

Our community is extremely lucky to have joined together for over 30 years to protect more than 1,400 acres of natural places on the Island. Natural spaces you’ve helped us protect provide a refreshing break from self-isolation or social-distancing. We encourage you to get outside and spend some time connecting with nature. Try visits to Agate Passage Preserve, Pritchard Park, the Grand Forest, or Gazzam Lake Nature Preserve, all properties that the Land Trust has helped conserve and are currently open for independent public access. 

We’re all in this together. If you need help with anything, please reach out to us.

Additionally, Bainbridge Prepares has created an online resource to request assistance and information specifically for our Island relating to the COVID-19 response.

We thank each and every one of you for your steadfast and ongoing dedication, support, and leadership. In these challenging times, remember, a stroll in the woods or a beach walk can provide us all with calming relief to boost both physical and mental health.

Be well!

Jane Stone
Executive Director
