Stand for the Land

Help us meet a new $1,000,000 Challenge!

Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Bainbridge community, we are now two thirds of the way to our overall Stand for the Land goal.

A small group of conservation-minded Islanders has come forward with a new, incredibly generous $1,000,000 challenge grant! They’ll match every dollar we raise through Spring 2020 for a total of $2 million – but we absolutely need your help to get there.


A Fourth Property is Announced!

The Bainbridge Island Land Trust is pleased to announce a fourth conservation opportunity through our Stand for the Land campaign. The 23-acre Springbrook Creek Preserve contains a resplendent landscape of mixed conifer uplands and stream-side alder forests. The forests and wetlands play a key role in providing cool, clear, and consistently flowing water in the creek for local wildlife including birds, mammals, and amphibians. This conservation area was selected after completing a multi-year stream assessment, assisted by local landowners and the Wild Fish Conservancy.

Challenge Funds Raised: $330,094

About the Campaign

In the face of growing development pressure, the Bainbridge Island Land Trust launched a multi-year initiative to protect as many beloved Island places and as much critical habitat as possible.

Stand for the Land—the largest and most ambitious campaign in Land Trust history—has already placed down payments on 66 acres thanks to the generosity of our Island community. Thanks to an incredible new challenge grant we have the power to protect even more. Please join us in supporting this exciting campaign!
