BILT’S mission is to preserve and steward the diverse natural environment of Bainbridge Island for the benefit of all. To achieve this goal, the Bainbridge Island Land Trust acquires 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. BILT works with private landowners to protect their land using land protection agreements called conservation easements and partners with a variety of stakeholders to acquire land for parks, trails and public use.
