See what the press has to say about our region!

We are so grateful for our community and the ongoing opportunity to support Whatcom County's economic development through tourism.

To better show how we serve, here is our 2021 Annual Report in video format.

Please spend a few minutes learning about our work, thank you.


Want a sheet to follow along? Here is some printed impact information from the video.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
