Humphreys Munai joins IslandWood as Chief Finance & Operations Officer.


• IslandWood adapts existing programs and creates new ones to meet the needs of our community during COVID-19. A few of the new programs launched include Afternoon Ecologists (an outdoor program for 3rd – 6th graders on Bainbridge Island), What’s for Dinner Wednesday (a to-go meal program), When It Rains, It Pours (free virtual water-based lessons for Seattle area schools), Hand in Hand Nature Explorations (story time, activities, and hikes on our Bainbridge campus for little ones and their adults), and more.


• We reinforce our commitment to building a race equity culture. Learn more about our justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) priorities and our progress towards those priorities, here.


• A school for the blind comes to our School Overnight Program for the first time. Our work with the Washington School for the Blind offers a powerful example of how we customize our lessons in partnership with schools and how our instructors are skilled at responding to the uniqueness of each individual student to ensure the best possible learning experience.


• We pilot the Duwamish River Project, a collaboration with Seattle Public Utilities, Seattle Public Schools, Community Health Advocates, and the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition. Sailing on an Argosy boat down the Duwamish River in South Seattle, 5th grade students learn about the social and ecological history of the river, including decades of pollution and the ongoing restoration efforts by many local groups.
