Nick Twietmeyer (at left, with camera) of the Kitsap News Group, follows Jane Stone and Ray Victurine on a tour of the Jablonko parcel, a 14.17-acre parcel, part of the historic Peters Tree Farm which sits just east of the Gazzam Lake Nature Preserve.

The parcel is one of two properties on the south end of the island that have been recently purchased by the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, which has recently started a new fundraising drive to buy and protect five properties on the island.

Officials with the nonprofit said they hope to raise $5 million in donations by the end of next year. The money will help pay for two properties that were recently acquired by the land trust, plus other lands high in habitat value that are at risk of development.
