Tour a Bellingham Waterfront Cleanup Site (& future Salish Landing Park space)

Between Boulevard Park and downtown Bellingham, trees were milled, stored and chemically treated for decades. Now, the RG Haley site is being cleaned up to become a public park three times larger than Boulevard Park. 

RSVP for the tour: Tuesday, February 27th from 12–1:30 p.m. Meet at Cornwall Beach (100 Pine St STE 202, Bellingham) 

You might recognize this site as you walk along the South Bay Trail between Boulevard Park and downtown Bellingham — it is the site just north of those prominent white tarps. Chemicals used to treat wood there, such as pentachlorophenol and petroleum hydrocarbons, are present in soil, groundwater and marine sediments at potentially harmful levels. Hear from staff at the Department of Ecology, Port of Bellingham, and RE Sources about the site's future and have your questions answered! 

During this Ecology public comment period (Feb. 12th to March 12th), you can have a say in how the Washington State Department of Ecology might address the contaminants.

Starts: February 27, 2024

Time: 12 - 1:30 p.m.

Location: Cornwall Beach

        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.
