IslandWood, a School in the Woods

Bainbridge Island, WA

With 255 acres of successional Northwest forests, wetlands, ravines, salmon spawning streams, and myriad wildlife, this experiential school teaches environmental stewardship by linking ecology, technology and creative arts. Site planning began with intensive analyses to sensitively locate buildings, circulation, grading, and restoring an existing pond and wetlands. Other restorative efforts included selecting native plants, restoring natural food sources, enhancing habitat, and collaborating in the design of a Living Machine™ that treats wastewater generated onsite using natural processes.
