Land Trust Names New Executive Director

The Bainbridge Island Land Trust (BILT) is pleased to announce the addition of Jane Myers Stone as the new Executive Director for the Trust.  Jane is a long time Islander and geotechnical engineer who co-owned and operated Myers Biodynamics on the Island for over 20 years.  She has an extended history of Land Trust involvement, serving previously as board member and volunteer before returning to the board in 2013.   "Jane's geotechnical consulting work on Island properties has made her extremely familiar with land characteristics and conservation efforts on the Island and how the Land Trust can best serve the Island," said BILT president David Harrison. "In addition, her small business experience has given her excellent leadership and management skills."

Jane will be co-directing the Land Trust with Connie Waddington, and will take over as the full time executive director in June of this year.  The organization has recently completed the $3.4 million 36-acre Hilltop acquisition campaign and its $1.05 million West Bainbridge Shoreline acquisition project. BILT also welcomes four new board members in 2014.  Gene Seligmann is a recently retired attorney who has represented property owners on the Island in a variety of transactions including transfers involving the Land Trust; Hilary Hilscher is a journalist who spent much of her career in her native Alaska and her last 20 years working for The Nature Conservancy and the Audubon Society.  Erin Kellogg is an experienced conservation nonprofit manager having worked as director of Ecotrust in Canada and as a staff member in Portland, Oregon. Deb Rudnick is an ecologist who specializes in stream, wetland and estuarine ecology.  The new BILT Officers for 2014 are David Harrison, President; Connie Waddington, Vice President (June-December); Jan Mulder, Secretary; and Barb Robert, Treasurer.

The Board and Staff of the Land Trust are eager to work with such talented people who bring a wide range of knowledge and enthusiasm for conservation and stewardship work for the benefit of all Bainbridge Islanders.
