Mary Meier, Executive Director of the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation joins us today on What’s Up Bainbridge to discuss the significant and important role the Foundation plays in improving the island’s parks and trails and expanding recreational opportunities.

Funded by private donors, grant resources and One Call for All, the Foundation, often in partnership with the BI Metropolitan Park & Recreation District and others has become an essential force for parks and trails projects, stewardship programs and supporting fundraising campaigns.

We also learn about Mary and her background that led her to this position. She discusses her commitment to environmental education, working with nonprofits and her passion for public lands and what they can do for people.
