Friends of IslandWood

About Friends of IslandWood

We design and deliver programs that get children, educators, and the community outside, learning more deeply in the natural world, and inspired to care for it!


In a typical year, we reach 50 school districts, 200 schools, and 25,000 children with a variety of programs in Seattle, Woodinville, Renton, Tacoma, and Bainbridge Island.


It is only with donor support that we’re able to provide scholarships to elementary and graduate students, teachers, and community members to ensure our programs are financially possible for all.


With our Friends of IslandWood program, your support inspires environmental stewardship in our region, but it also provides you with the added benefit of additional access to our Bainbridge Island trails!


Friends of IslandWood memberships are a benefit with donations starting at $150, either as a one-time gift or as monthly recurring gifts over twelve months. Friends of IslandWood, and their guests, receive additional access to our trails most weekends, Friday through Sunday from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.


Give $150 today, or set up a recurring monthly gift. You’ll be supporting IslandWood’s programs and have additional trail time on our Bainbridge campus to wander, discover, and explore!

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.
