Thursday, November 2nd – Breakfast of Champions 

Join our Board of Directors and staff in celebrating our Outdoor Recreation Champions (like yourself) with a delicious breakfast at Boundary Bay Brewery. This is a benefit for our new Parkscriptions program, where we are partnering with health practitioners to get more people outdoors to enjoy the increased physical, mental, emotional and community health benefits of time spent in nature. 

Buy your Breakfast of Champions ticket today Tickets include your morning mimosa!

Thursday, November 2nd
7:00 am – 8:45 am
Boundary Bay Brewery


Please help us create the foundation of a solid Parkscriptions program and support more healthy people, here in Whatcom County. Your investment will help fund the challenging task of creating the online database and materials used by healthcare providers and the public.  


Fairhaven Park Stewardship 

The trail is under Construction! Yes, it’s happening. Updates in the works.
