The City of Bellingham is planning to digest the sewage solids from Post Point Wastewater Treatment Plant, producing biosolids to spread on local land. Biosolids are a concentrated chemical concoction of persistent, bioaccumulative toxics such as carcinogenic PFAS/PCBs, pharmaceuticals, flame retardants, petroleum products and pathogens. When sewage solids are applied to land, the chemicals do not stay put — they are suspended by wind, washed into streams with rain, migrate deeper into the soil, seep into groundwater, and are absorbed by plants and the animals that graze on them. Please send Bellingham City Council members a message before they meet on April 25th, urging them to NOT allow the land spreading of biosolids.
To combat plastic pollution in the Salish Sea, RE Sources regularly hosts beach cleanups — as well as cleanups along rivers and lakes — throughout Whatcom and Skagit counties, providing cleanup equipment and a place to connect with like-minded community members.

Join North Sound Stewards
We train residents of Whatcom County to become community scientists and participate in beach surveys. Community scientists are integral to support 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.
