Project Description

An important component of our commitment to stewardship.

The Summer Trails Crew is organized by the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation in partnership with the Bainbridge Island Metro Park District to support Island trails by providing a construction and maintenance workforce to enhance the popular trail system managed by the Park District.

The Summer Trails Crew, consisting of 5 college-age workers, works under the BIMPRD for six weeks, providing necessary labor hours to improve and expand our Island trail system while providing summer employment to college students.   The Summer Trails Crew aims to complete at least 1 mile of new trail(s) under BIMPRD supervision and provide maintenance for approximately a 25% of existing trails.

Application process: Interested individuals apply directly to BIMPRD in the spring.  Contact Emily Helgeson at [email protected] for more information.


The Summer Trails Crew is supported in part by the Bainbridge Community Foundation and the Alder Fund, Leslie & Michael Lebeau Philanthropic Fund, and Hastings Family Fund at BCF.
