Advocacy Alert: Lake Whatcom Trail meeting, Wednesday, March 18th

Passing along Lake Whatcom trail meeting info…bb >*<


Hi folks!

Please join us next Wednesday (March 18th) as Whatcom County Parks will be holding their 2nd community meeting to gather public input about recreational opportunities in the Lake Whatcom Reconveyance.

For those not familiar with this land, it’s the 8,800 acres on Lookout and Stewart Mountains (see below maps) that was transferred from the DNR back to Whatcom County after a rather lengthy (8 year) process. Over those years, many of you showed your support at county council meetings and in your well-written letters, so we need your follow-through to show support for trails that will provide an amazing recreational experience for mt. bikers and other trail users alike.

Some items to consider in next week’s meeting:
• Does the county’s initial plan align with those locations or trails where you currently recreate?
• What kind of experience do you want to see on these lands? Loops, destinations…
