The Board of Trustees are the governing body of the corporation. In 1970, Prentice Bloedel and Virginia Merrill Bloedel gave the Board of Regents of the University of Washington their home and land on Bainbridge Island for the purpose of developing and maintaining an arboretum and natural reserve devoted to the education of students and the general public. In 1986, the Board of Regents conveyed The Bloedel Reserve to The Arbor Fund.
