Join in the week-long celebration of our water resources, September 17-24, and learn about the state of our water resources. Inspire others to learn about stewardship efforts through a multitude of fun and educational opportunities and venues.
The second-annual celebration begins on Saturday, Sept. 17, with a kick-off and executive proclamation at the Bellingham Farmers Market, 1100 Railroad Avenue. Then join the Lake Whatcom Management Team at Bloedel Donovan Pavilion to hear from team members and share your perspective on Lake Whatcom. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) staff will be on hand 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to demonstrate how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species on boats and trailers.
Dozens of other activities fill the rest of the week. On Monday, Sept. 19, you can learn about rainwater harvesting and tour both residential and commercial properties to see complete systems. Or tour the Post Point Wastewater Treatment Facility. On Saturday, September 24, join an Arbor Day Celebration at Elizabeth Park or tour the Bellingham Waterfront District.
Most events are free and require advance registration. For complete details, visit the Whatcom Water Week calendar, hosted by the Whatcom Watershed Information Network.
