From hiking to Cedar Lake in the Chuckanuts to searching for migrating salmon in Arroyo Park, Reconnect Earth has had a great fall season so far experiencing wild places near Bellingham. We’ve also had important discussions about opportunities to take action on environmental and social justice issues, and written letters to the City of Bellingham’s Climate Action Task Force in support of 100% renewable energy.
Our last trip of the fall season is coming up on December 1st. Read more below:
Exploring the Nooksack. Experience late autumn and look for birds and other wildlife along the Nooksack River, one of Whatcom County’s most important waterways. We’ll take a slow-paced stroll through wetlands and along the riverbank, pausing to enjoy sights along the way and discuss some of the ecological challenges in the Nooksack watershed. This day trip is an especially great option for those with limited mobility or who simply enjoy taking things slowly.
When: Saturday, December 1st, 1:00 to about 4:00pm*
Where: Meet at the Tennant Lake Interpretive Center** parking lot at the end of Nielsen Road (a 25 minute drive from WWU, also accessible by bus). See here for a map.
Suggested donation: $10. Register here.
