Birch Bay Beach Fest and Feast; Shell-a-bration
Join us on June 2nd at Birch Bay State Park for family-friendly activities, a low tide critter search, scavenger hunt, educational displays and clam chowder lunch! It is a free access day to Birch Bay State Park.
A ribbon cutting ceremony at noon will celebrate the installation of a series of interpretive signs aimed to increase public awareness and understanding of the ecological importance of Birch Bay. We will also have an award ceremony commemorating all the community efforts that have lead to the reclassification of 129 acres of shellfish beds at the mouth of Terrell Creek after a 10 year closure. Whatcom Conservation District's Mobile Watershed Explorer will be on display, as well as many other children's activities and games. Stay tuned for more info!
Celebrate with the whole community the reopening of the shellfish harvest area at the mouth of Terrell Creek. Read more about the reopening here.
