POSTPONED:: 17th Annual Bainbridge Environmental Conference

March 15 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Although we were very much looking forward to the Association of Bainbridge Communities Environmental Conference next weekend on March 15, out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing the event.

Recent King County recommendations aimed at reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 have suggested avoiding bringing large groups together. Your safety, and the safety of our staff and community at large, are of the utmost importance to us. While it saddens us to have to postpone a weekend of bringing people together over a topic of the utmost importance – something we are extremely passionate about doing – we know this is the right decision for all.

What’s next?

-The ABC Environmental Conference Planning team is working with our speakers and session leaders to reschedule this conference for next fall.

-As soon as we land on a new date, we will reach out to inform you.

-If you have registered for the conference and are unable to make the new date, we can issue you a refund. Please email marym@islandwood.org if you’d like us to issue you a refund.

We’re disappointed not to be seeing you next weekend but hope to see you this fall for the conference. We encourage you to spend next Sunday sharing a walk with friends and family through one of our Island’s magnificent forests.


“Stewarding Island Forests through Climate Change,” the 17th annual Bainbridge Environmental Conference, will bring forestry and climate change experts to our community to support resilient island forests, March 15, 2020, at IslandWood.

Stewarding our forests through the challenges of climate change requires a new understanding of forest management, and strategies for planning future forests. How can we protect existing ecosystems? What trees and understory plants will thrive with changing conditions? How can we reduce tree die-offs and decrease the threat of forest fires? The entire community will benefit from this knowledge, as we all live near and between forests, and use these places to add recreation, inspiration, health and aesthetic richness to our lives.
