Volunteer helpers needed to mulch, weed and plant? We are planning work parties to maintain and enhance our plantings around the ferry landing and the Northern public shoreline. Saturdays, from 10 am to 12 pm, April 14th and April 21st. Please come and have fun with us while doing this needed work! We are back in action applying for grants and are ready with permits for Phase II of this project. We are also applying for shoreline debris clean up funding as well. Wish us luck!!

Warning: Whatcom and San Juan County Marine Biotoxin Closure is for Varnish Clams only. Skagit County on Sinclair and Cypress Islands is closed for all shellfish species. This closure is very close to Lummi Island and why I recommend you avoid eating any clams from Lummi Island at this point in time.
