We’re leading a community tour at the mouth of Whatcom Creek — the former Holly St. Landfill, one of 12 Bellingham Bay cleanup sites contaminated with heavy metals from historic industrial activity that state and local agencies are restoring for future use. 150 years ago, this area was an estuary and mudflats. Come learn from experts and scientists on the past, present and future of this piece of Bellingham’s waterfront.

Hear from staff at the Department of Ecology, City of Bellingham, Lummi-led nonprofit Whiteswan Environmental and RE Sources about the site’s future and have your questions answered!

More information and comment period details on Ecology’s website. Public comment on the site’s cleanup evaluation report are accepted June 3rd through July 3rd. During this Ecology public comment period, you can have a say in how the Washington State Department of Ecology might address the contaminants.
