Along with Bellingham Parks, NSEA will be removing invasive plants at Maritime Heritage Park near Whatcom Creek.  Park in the lot at the end of C Street, accessed from Holly Street. 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.

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.
