Get an overview of the early development of Bellingham Bay shores and learn about beach and coastal restoration projects around the bay over the past 25 years. Beach enhancement and creation and estuary enhancement for improving nearshore habitats will be outlined, along with improved waterfront access. Sites discussed will include Fairhaven‘s Marine Park, Boulevard Park, Waypoint Park, and Little Squalicum Park which had coastal restoration projects designed by the speaker. Will also get a glimpse into planned coastal enhancement at the Cornwall landfill area/future Cornwall Beach Park and highlights of several larger similar projects around the Salish Sea. This talk will be about an hour long with extra time for questions.
