Friends of IslandWood

About Friends of IslandWood

Steadfast donor support and commitment have enabled IslandWood to grow from a pilot program into a national leader in environmental education, impacting 30,000 people in a typical year.

Serving the entire Puget Sound region, IslandWood provides environmental education programs to inspire children, educators, and the community to expand their understanding of the natural world around them.


As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we’re excited to launch the inaugural Friends of IslandWood member program to show our deep appreciation for this supportive donor community. Friends of IslandWood members, along with their guests, will have special trail access to explore our Bainbridge Island campus on weekends, Friday through Sunday from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.


As of April 1, 2023, any donor who has given $150 or more over the last twelve months is a Friend of IslandWood!


When you give $150 or more over a twelve-month period, you are a Friend of IslandWood. Give today – support IslandWood’s programs reaching 30,000 people a year and secure access to additional trail time on our Bainbridge campus!

With a new program, we anticipate there will be questions. (As a learning organization, we love questions!)

Sign Up for Trail Access!

As a Friend of IslandWood, you will receive a membership code via email to register for free trail access tickets. Using your code, please register for the dates and times that you’d like to explore the trails. And of course, your friends and family are welcome to join you!


We’ll have maps available and will provide suggestions suitable for your group’s abilities and interests. Please be sure to check-in at the Welcome Center desk. Some of our trails accommodate strollers and wheelchairs and our greeters can point them out on the map when you arrive. Service animals only, please.
