Last Month
Last month we were privileged with the opportunity to host the first public presentation on the Nooksack Middle Fork Dam Removal Project by April McEwen of American Rivers, Ned Currence with the Nooksack Indian Tribe of Washington and Stephen Day with the City of Bellingham.
Thank you April, Ned and Steve for your continued support and dedication to restoring and preserving the Middle Fork Nooksack River. We deeply enjoyed learning about the project and its success.
