Paddle Tour of Bellingham Bay's Cleanup Sites

Hop in a kayak and have your questions about our local bay answered at this tour! Tour leaders will show kayakers a perspective of Bellingham Bay that can’t be seen from land, and visit sites that illuminate the history of Bellingham Bay, its legacy industrial contamination (MTCA, or Model Toxic Control Act sites), cleanup and habitat improvement opportunities, and how our local bay plays a role in the health of the Salish Sea and its endangered orca population. We will launch our boats from the Community Boating Center/Fairhaven Boat Launch. Spots are limited!

        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.
