Cancelled due to severe weather -- Family Service Party and Gear Swap

Unfortunately, we have cancelled the Family Service Day due to predictions of a monster storm, with potential wind gusts of 60 mph!  While we don't mind the rain, wind can be too dangerous a factor due to tree fall and debris.  We are looking forward to rescheduling and enjoying this celebration of service and community in the near future.  Thank you for your understanding.

Wild Whatcom has teamed up with the Bellingham Parks and Recreation Department to offer a free, fun, and family-friendly outdoor event on this early-release Thursday at Squalicum Creek Park.

Pitch in alongside your child with shovels and buckets as we weed and mulch around young trees in a new forest restoration from 3:00-5:00PM. All ages welcome. Gloves and other supplies provided.

We'll then celebrate our afternoon from 5:00-6:30PM with a potluck (please bring a dish to share), music by the marimba band, Kuunga, and other fun activities! Cups, plates, and flatware provided.

We'll also be holding a gear swap! If you have unused or outgrown outdoor gear lying around (clothing, equipment, etc.), gather them up and bring them along. No need to bring gear in order to participate in the swap. 

Want to volunteer? Have a question?
