The Redpath Fund is an endowment established in honor or Robert U. Redpath Jr. ’28. Mr. Redpath was a great advocate for lifelong learning, believing that Commencement should be viewed as the beginning of one’s ongoing education. With that spirit in mind, the Redpath Fund extends Yale’s ability to bring educational programs to Yale graduates across the country.

Mr. Redpath joined the Yale Club of Central New Jersey in 1930, serving as chairman of the club’s Alumni Schools Committee for more than three decades. In this capacity, he led hundreds of applicants through the process of applying to Yale. In addition, he served as president of the Yale Club of Central New Jersey and for 42 years was secretary of the Yale College Class of 1928. He was awarded the Yale Medal in 1968, the highest honor bestowed for service to Yale.

When: Saturday, May 11, 2019 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Where: Bainbridge Island Land Trust, 187 Parfitt Way, Bainbridge Island

Hop on a ferry with views of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker or drive down the street to visit one of Bainbridge Island Land Trust’s premier conservation properties.  You’ll get a morning of exclusive access to private lands set aside for their ecological value and aesthetic radiance while you help restore nature’s balance by removing ivy and other invasive species, piling up the debris, and watching the land return to a simpler time.  Bring your own gloves, and land trust staff will bring loppers and other tools for working the soil.

Staff from Bainbridge Island Land Trust will provide an interpretive tour to highlight the significance of this land and our work on it.  Trust lands include wildland trails, ponds, forests, and meadows providing habitat for deer, beavers, waterfowl, coyotes, raccoons, and myriad species of beloved birds.  Check out some of the special spaces on their website:  https://www.bi-landtrust.org.

To date, the Land Trust has helped to protect nearly 1,400 acres of vulnerable forestlands, wetlands, meadows, shorelines, agricultural lands, scenic vistas, and land near lakes, ponds and streams, the majority of which are open to the public. The Land Trust holds 48 conservation easements – 42 on private property and 6 on publicly-owned properties – encompassing 763 acres, with an additional 146 acres owned by the Land Trust outright. Through Land Trust acquisitions or with Land Trust assistance, 464 acres are preserved as public parks and natural areas.

TIME:  10:00 A.M. TO 12:00 P.M.  MAY 11, 2019.  Rain or shine.

TRANSPORTATION:  Pick-up from the Seattle-Bainbridge ferry available:  call Jason at 360.581.3636.  FREE FERRY FARE to the first 10 Yale Day of Service participants who request it.  Ferries leave Seattle at approximately 7:55 and 8:55, but check latest ferry schedule.

PARKING:  Meet at 187 Parfitt Way, Bainbridge Island, WA, to carpool to site.  Parfitt Way is just a 15-minute walk from the ferry terminal.

LUNCH:  free pizza and soda will be available at 12:30 P.M.
