IslandWood began as a singular, unique place. A place created to help students see themselves – and their world – differently. But seeing the world differently isn’t always about going somewhere else. Sometimes it’s about looking around you and opening your eyes to things you’ve never noticed, or never thought about before. Like the impact our actions have on our communities, the planet, and the people we share it with.

Today, IslandWood is more than a single place. Whether our work happens on Bainbridge Island, in Seattle public schools and neighborhoods or at the King County Brightwater Treatment Plant, we’re creating thoughtfully-designed experiences that help students deepen their understanding of their environment and discover the impact they can have on their world and community. Experiences designed to shift perspectives in a way that unlocks curiosity and personal purpose.

This, we believe, is the first step in breaking down the barriers and inequities that prevent us all from working together to care for the planet. Please join us as we come together to create a more equitable and sustainable future.

Dinner in the Woods couldn't happen without the passion and engagement of our 2019 Host Committee:

Gretchen Hund Andrews and Ted Andrews

Debbi and Paul Brainerd

Laury and Bill Bryant

Ellie and Brendan Fields

Marguerite and Mort Kondracke

Martha Kongsgaard and Peter Goldman

Elizabeth Shonsey and Dave Johnson

Marilyn and John Warner

Leave the gowns and tuxedos in the closet. This gala is Pacific Northwest casual – jeans, flannels, or fleeces are encouraged.


Ferries leave Seattle at 3:05 pm, 3:50 pm, and 4:45 pm. You may drive your car onto the ferry and park at IslandWood. If you plan to drive your car onto the ferry, we suggest you arrive at the ferry dock at least 30 minutes early as Saturday afternoon ferries in the Spring, especially on a sunny day, can get crowded.

If you'd like to walk onto the ferry and leave your car in Seattle, please do! We will provide transportation between the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal and IslandWood for the 3:50 pm and 4:45 pm ferries to the Island and the 9:45 pm and 10:30 pm sailings returning to Seattle. We recommend parking at the 1st & Columbia (US Bank) Parking Lot and the Waterfront Place Lot #103 .

The Seattle/Bainbridge ferry schedule is available here.
