The Bainbridge Island Land Trust was started in 1989 by Nate Thomas and Jim Cutler, both architects, Mike Ryherd, a state lobbyist, and Paul Kundtz, an attorney. This group and others were concerned about growth on Bainbridge Island and established the Land Trust to provide a way for landowners to permanently preserve their property.

The 23-acre property at the corner of Highway 305 and Day Road was originally slated to become a golf driving range. In 1990, the Land Trust acquired the property and sold it to a conservation-minded buyer who placed a conservation easement on the parcel, protecting the scenic rolling hills and meadows we enjoy today. Shortly thereafter, Phyllis Young placed a conservation easement on her Battle Point Spit property, making it the Land Trust’s second easement and protecting a marine estuary and important shoreline habitat.
