Our mission: We promote outdoor recreation and bring people together to enjoy, preserve and improve the places where we play.
Our commitment to Stewardship is shown through our partnership with City of Bellingham Parks and Recreation as open space stewards. Recreation Northwest leverages volunteers to maintain and improve our public spaces.
We provide Educational opportunities to bring people together to discuss and create positive recommendations for local events and the recreation community.
