Hike up through the forest and emerge onto a lookout point with a spectacular view of Lake Whatcom, the Chuckanut Mountains, and Bellingham Bay. We’ll pause along the way to admire and discuss the plant and animal life, and for some fun yet thought-provoking activities. With the view of Lake Whatcom in the background, we’ll also talk about issues affecting this lake that supplies Bellingham with drinking water and opportunities to help improve the health of our waterways.
