Waterfront Cleanup Tour: Boulevard Park

Tuesday, October 30th
1:00 - 2:30 PM
South Bay Trail by Boulevard Park (map)

When Bellingham's waterfront was an industrial hub, there was a manufactured gas plant -- where coal was converted to natural gas -- near Boulevard Park. Come learn about the site and the process of cleaning it up, restoring habitat, and what's next for Boulevard Park.

You'll get to see the park from a new perspective and have a chance to send a comment to the Department of Ecology on the cleanup.

We'll meet under a canopy where South State St. meets the trail that drops into Boulevard Park. 

Ecology will also hold a public meeting later in the evening. More info on the Ecology website.
