Thank Whatcom County COuncil for Increasing Tree Retention in Developable parts of the Lake Whatcom Watershed

We applaud this important step to retain tree cover in our drinking watershed, and we look forward to working with the County on more efforts to improve and protect the health of Lake Whatcom moving forward. Please take a moment to thank our Whatcom County Council members.

urge the state building code council to set clean energy & efficiency standards for new homes

More heat pumps = more comfortable, efficient homes! Homes built in Washington could start using efficient electric heat pumps — which both warm and cool indoor places — instead of polluting natural gas appliances. Urge the State Building Code Council to pass better building codes today.

Thank YOUR Lawmakers for ACTING on CLimate (Or tell them to do so next Time)

The $750 billion Inflation Reduction Act will put the country on a path to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030, create millions of good paying jobs, and provide billions in funding for communities harmed by environmental injustices. Thank your lawmakers for voting to pass this landmark legislation and tell them we need to do even more.  

Take the 100% Northwest Pledge

Our 100% Northwest campaign’s main goal is to transition Northwest Washington to a 100% clean energy economy by 2030 by advocating for smart policies, informing residents about practical clean energy solutions and widening community outreach. It just needs people-power!

join north sound stewards

We train residents of Whatcom County to become community scientists and participate in beach surveys. Community scientists are integral to supporting important conservation work that underfunded government agencies are often stretched too thin to do. The North Sound Stewards program serves as a hub for community science in Whatcom and Skagit Counties, pairing you up with the best fit for your interests. There are opportunities for every skill set and experience level, from kayaking to data entry to photography.
