Come celebrate Earth Day with NSEA! Free shirts for volunteers! Join us at this BP site to plant native trees, mulch and remove blackberries along Terrell Creek! From Bellingham, head North on I-5 and take exit #266 Grandview Rd and head west. Turn right at the stop sign at Jackson Rd. Parking is available at the former Birch Bay Bible Community Church. Look for NSEA signs and shuttle. We’ll bring the tools and gloves-all you have to do is wear sturdy shoes, long pants and weather appropriate clothing. No need to sign up in advance-just sign in at the blue NSEA tent.

There will be a complimentary BBQ lunch after the work party from 12:00 PM-1:30 PM on 4/18.

The Marine Life Center (MLC) offers visitors a chance to see what lurks beneath the bay. The center showcases marine life and habitat in Bellingham Bay, Puget Sound and on the Washington Coast. A touch pool offers an up close and more personal experience.  Admission is free.  Open 7 days a week.  Jun - Aug 10am - 6pm and Sept - May 11am - 5pm.  Visit with the animals and exhibits including: 

The Observation Pool

Our largest exhibit, this open pool lets you come face to face with some of our largest creatures, including Rockfish, Starry Flounders, Dungeness Crab, Sea Stars and Giant Green Anemones.

The Touch Pool

As the name suggests, this popular exhibit is our only tank where touching isn’t just allowed, its encouraged! A hands-on experience, this little pool contains hermit crabs, sea stars, urchins and small fish hiding under every rock.

The Octopus Tank

That's what we like to call the large middle aquarium parallel to the outside walkway. We periodically obtain an octopus (even a giant pacific octopus) and when we do, we keep it in here. Octopus or no octopus, this tank is never empty; take a look for yourself!

Bellingham's waterfront is a fun destination. Stroll, roller blade or ride around a paved serene waterfront and marina path.
