Stand for the Land

The Fifth and Final Property Announced! 

The Bainbridge Island Land Trust is excited to announce a rare opportunity to protect one of the last remaining intact and unprotected parcels over 20 acres in size on the Island – but we need your help.

Rockaway Bluff Preserve is an exceptional 35-acre forest lying above Rockaway Beach on Bainbridge Island. Please help protect this exceptional forested plateau for the benefit of all. Stewarded for decades by an Island family, this acquisition will offer future public access trails and conserve a mature, intact forest habitat important to wildlife. This is also critical to the Land Trust’s work in forming a network of lands resilient to climate change. Learn more about this incredible opportunity below!

Here’s a look at the Stand for the Land projects currently in progress. And remember—this represents just a portion of our overall campaign goal.

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!


*Stand for the Land campaign funds will be utilized for costs associated with land acquisition, operating the Stand for the Land campaign, and stewardship of acquired properties.

We need your help. Please consider making a donation today.

Contributions will help us expand, protect and preserve ecologically sensitive habitat. For everyone. Forever.
