Recreation Northwest

Recreation Northwest

We promote outdoor recreation and bring people together to enjoy, preserve and improve the places where we play. Stewardship | Education | Fun | The Confluence | Calendar


We enjoy being outside. We like giving back. We have this in common.
We need your help kicking off our Community Stewardship Program in Bellingham. We are launching the first project of our stewardship program to demonstrate the value we see in taking care of the places we enjoy. This project grew out of a community request to provide support for the trails connecting Fairhaven Park and the Chuckanut Community Forest. Read more.
