Fairhaven Park is our main stewardship location. We will continue to improve trail conditions, advocate for way-finding signs, monitor our native plant mitigation sites, and improve public access.
Our program continues our community collaborations with organizations and public land managers. Parkscriptions.org enables health care providers and the public to access our ParkFinder.org tool to find public parks and open space in Whatcom County and across Washington State. Powered by Park Rx America.
